    Which fire extinguisher?

    I've been putting this off for long enough.

    I'd like a fire extinguisher to keep in the car and was wondering what type/rating/capacity I should be looking at?

    I have a Vanguard BC 1kg powder hand held extinguisher in mine, as well as a Lifeline 2000 fire marshall plumbed in system.

    the Vanguard 1kg came top in a test I read, giving a decent spray for the longest time of all the other 1Kg extinguishers.

    that's the one sir! One in the Mini and one in the audi. I saw no point going smaller than a 1kg, because you'd be pretty pissed off if you put the fire out 90% then ran out of powder and it lit up again
