What are you guys carrying in your cars? Does one type work better than the others in a worst case? Thanks.

I just carry a typical 2lb ABC and leave it on the back seat floor. Yes it rolls around but I'm too lazy to mount it anywhere,
This "ELEMENT" fire extinguisher looks promising. If you click on "MEDIA" at the top there's some good videos, Jay Leno's Garage is one I watched.

I used to carry a Halon fire extinguisher, It doesn't spray the powder dust everywhere like conventional extinguishers.

I like and use CO2 every where I can, no mess after the fire is out except damage from the fire up

Be real careful when using Halon, it displaces oxygen and cause the loss of consciousness and death if not address quickly, especially in building fires scope

You mean using them in Enclosed Spaces.
Thought they banned them years ago.
