If you do have to leave your house, it's going to be that much harder for your car to start. Check your battery and replace it if needed. Keep jumper cables in your car incase it dies. Also important are winter products like "ISO Heet."
Another old “trick” to passing emissions: Add two bottles of ISO Heet to a quarter-tank of gas for a “big” improvement. Very little more than straight rubbing alcohol, ISO Heet is sold as a fuel-line freeze inhibitor, and the theory is that since alcohol burns cleaner, mixing it with gas should have the same effect. It worked marginally in our testing, with the exception of our CO output—our cat might’ve cooled a bit from our previous run.
I use Isoheet in summer and winter.

snd isoheet takes moisture out of ethanol... which most gas station gas has in it I'm glad that there are a couple of gas stations in the area that sells 100% gas here.
