    FYI: those little 2.5-5# extinguishers don't do much in terms of putting a car fire out, unless you catch it REALLY quick and its something small like a wire or something.

    You really need at a minimum a couple 25#ers to put a car fire out. If you've ever watched a car catch fire at the track you'll see that they come out with a couple of 40# extinguishers and usually need 3-4 of them to get everything out.

    Having said that, I still have a 5# extinguisher mounted in front of the pass. seat in my C5.
