For most of the year, Alaska is covered in green trees and expansive lakes. But in the winter, Alaska can receive quite a bit of snowfall, making roads icy and dangerous to drive on. That is why making sure that your vehicle is safe for winter in Alaska is of the utmost importance.
Before the snows of winter begin to fall, it is best to get the engine and brakes of your car checked out. If gone unchecked, it could lead to the automobile stalling. Because colder weather is quite hard on car batteries, you should have the battery checked the make sure that it has enough juice. Both the heater and the defroster should be checked-up on, too.
Fuel de-icer should be purchased and kept in the vehicle to keep fuel lines from freezing. The fuel de-icer should be poured into the gas tank at least once a month in the winter. Windshield wipers should be replaced when winter begins. Blades that have rubber work well when clearing away heavy snow. It is also important that your tires are safe, as well. ‘All Weather’ tires should be used in winter that have the right amount of pressure and inflation.
