    How about an automatic vehicle engine bay fire suppression system?

    This would really be the only way to properly protect your investment. Similar to an automatic system in a restaurant kitchen.

    I've unfortunately had the need to use an extinguisher on a burning collision I came upon. It was a small fire extinguisher but it kept the flames and heat away from the trapped driver for a few seconds which fortunately was all that was needed until the truck driver came with a larger one and then I was able to reach in through the flames/smoke/heat to unbuckle and pull the driver out through the passenger side of the truck. I have an extinguisher in every vehicle now, not for property saving, but potentially life saving. Those Elements look great, although pricey.

    Anything is better than nothing, if you have a big fire there’s not much you can do, but a small unit will be useful to a degree, or to help with the big fire if needed. If you have nothing and end up with a small fire, then what?

    Legend has it that the plastic hood clips should melt, the fire blanket falls on the engine, and smothers the fire.

    Keeping in mind that the fire is always a lot bigger by the time the truck gets there. If you got to it immediately and it was still small you might have a chance with a small onboard extinguisher.
