Stuck? Put your floor mats to use!
If your wheels are spinning on ice or snow, place your floor mats behind your tires to help gain traction.
Tank Half Full
Besides staying positive, it’s best to keep your fuel tank half full or completely filled. Not only does this enable you to stay warm in case you get stuck, but it is also easier on your vehicle.
Mix up one part water and two parts rubbing alcohol, then add it to a spray bottle. Spray on your windows either before a chilling night or when you go to defrost your windows! Likewise, if your handles are stuck on your vehicle, a small squirt of hand sanitizer will do the trick.
