Default Winter maps for utec and cheap gas

I wondering if it would be possible to create a low power map for a utec for winter use when you don't really need the power and tune it for cheap 87/89 octane gas? By winter i'm talking about a foot of snow on the ground and ice everywhere, so obviously i wouldn't need much power to get around in the car, just enough to drive it.
Would the utec be able to tune it on that low of gas safely? Again i know there wouldn't be much power to be had on that low of octane, but in the winter i wouldn't really need it. So with that in mind what do you all think?

yes, you could easily do it. scooting around on wastegate boost pressure will make all of the engine components last longer, and probably keep you on the road a lot more! you'd have to watch the midrange if you're not on a low tps crossover to open loop utec fueling... even wastegate boost might knock with truly isht gas if the oem ecu is still calling the shots and the afr is still stoich.

i'm probably going to take some -ve camber off when i switch back to snows for many of the same reasons... i might even disconnect the roll bars.
