So..... you are T-boned on the drivers rear, you manage to exit the vehicle just as fuel ignites. You reach into the cabin to retrieve the small, unsecured “extinguisher” and find the force of the impact has thrown it somewhere other than where you think it should be. ☹️☹️
please consider a bracket, or some adhesive strips of Velcro for a no-holes solution, to help ensure you can actually find this “extinguisher” should the need ever arise.
Very basic recommendations from someone who has lived through two Weber engine fires. One put out by a passing trucker, the other by myself a year later. Sometimes, I'm a fast learner! I bought an extinguisher for every car I owned before I fixed the damage from the 1st fire.
1)- Pick a gaseous or foam media extinguisher in 2-1/2 lb minimum size. Damage & clean-up from powder extinguishers sometimes exceeds the damage & cleanup that occurs from just running away and letting the sucker burn.
2)- if you go for a mounted-on-board fire system, don't make the mistake of aiming one (or more) nozzles at the driver's face! Its impossible to make any rational decisions during an on-board fire, with a faceful of extinguishent (according to a nationally known racing safety expert- not me!)
I bought some. I saw them a few years ago and liked the idea. At that time the US didn't seem to think they could do what we already have, IMHO. I do carry both, the standard chemical oxidizing system and the maybe the new and improved Element system. Time will tell. The hope is I don't need either one!
