Temperatures in Central New Mexico are starting to creep up after the epic New Year's Eve snow storm, but it's still cold outside. Especially at night. Cold weather can affect your car's performance in a negative way. According to the cold-weather experts in Boston, MA, there are ways to keep your car running right in the cold. First, keep your gas tank full or nearly full. If your tank is nearly empty, condensation can build up in the tank, freeze and block the flow of fuel. Second, try parking in a garage - even if the garage isn't heated. If you are not able to park in a garage, try placing a heavy blanket over the hood to trap the engine heat through the night. That extra bit of warmth will make it easier to start your car the next morning.
