    Love that placement, but TBH don't really want passengers or passersby (convertible) walking by and seeing it. Trunk seems like a good second option.

    Is it going to be for peace of mind, looks, or to actually put out a fire?

    Would love to have some of our resident firefighters chime in, but my understanding has always been that you aren’t putting out any fire with anything less than a 5lb

    Peace of mind/fire prevention. Always worried about an injector or fuel line blowing a seal and spraying fuel on the exhaust, or power steering fluid + headers. Had a buddy lose a very nice vehicle to an engine fire that could have been stopped likely if he had an extinguisher on board so always in back of my mind.

    Been considering one of these:

    https://elementfirecanada.com/

    Small enough to fit in the glove box.

    I was just going to say that this Element unit looks interesting.

    Don is right. To be truthful, the ones you guys have wouldn’t put out a trash can full of paper, let alone a gasoline fire. I’m surprised that they still sell them. Even the 5lbs ones don’t do a lot. We carry 20lbs ones on the rigs and I have only 10lbs ones in my house. If you’re worried, get better insurance because it’s very rare that a car is saved from fire unless it’s right next to the station or it’s a small interior fire. Especially if you are in a more rural area where response times are higher.

    That element thing looks interesting, but I’d have to see it used on an actual fire.

    Many moons ago, a fire safety technician came to my pace of work to give everyone a safety talk and to demonstrate the proper use of a fire extinguisher. After the session was over I asked him about an extinguisher for the car and he pretty much echoed the above statement, He told us a story about travelling on the 401 to go see a client and came across a car fire. Due to his profession, he said he was obligated to stop and offer assistance. He said he emptied five 20lb extinguishers and still couldn't knock the fire down (he used all the units he had in his van).
