You're not driving to the North Pole. There is nothing special your car needs. A low of around 20F is nothing. Just go have fun on your trip. If it snows, you're not ging to be able to drive without a snow setup. Just rent an SUV if you need to.

About the gas additive thing: That is totally unnecessary. The Russians used gasoline to keep their weapons from jamming in WWII. If it works in Russia, it will work here. You will freeze to death before your gas does.

Anyways, 400 to 600 cc sleds will have ample power to have fun; a 900 triple is not necessary to have fun.
Not to mention he would kill himself on a 900 if he's never driven any sort of snowmobile/motorcycle before.
