Re: Looking for a source for Auto Fire Extinguishers
Most A:B:C rated extinguishers (ones that WILL put out a fire) are like
that. I am looking at it more from a safety perspective. Would rather save
a life and replace the car.
BTW, Halon is the best bet if you can still find it. I think the EPA
outlawed it or something. Might still be able to get overseas. But, in
this country it will be hard to find and DAMN expensive if you can. Halon
was great as it would put out a fire extremely well (engine oil, grease,
etc) and wouldn't ruin all electrical connections it touches.
I'm not aware of anything on the market now that compares.
