When the driver switches from 2-wheel drive to 4-wheel drive, the transfer case engages and power is then sent to both...

These are a couple of benefits you might want to familiarize yourself with as the freezing temperatures arrive. More air and less gas in the tank can cause condensation to form. Those water droplets crystallize in freezing temperatures, which could clog the fuel line and starve the engine of needed fuel.

If you are constantly driving around with low fuel, trouble could happen if you get stranded in the middle of the night due to being stuck in the snow. Without…
