Still only a few cases... I thought it was something common I just missed. As long as i'm not passed out inside of it and get chicken fried i could care less, that just means I get a new one!

Well, this is the first I've heard of it.

Great security blanket in case sheet happens.

I'll run into a burning structure in a heartbeat, BUT, I always have my thinking cap on pulling up to a vehicle fully involved.

The question when it comes to fire extinguishers, is what kind to get. The standard ABC extinguisher may put out the fire, but bank on replacing EVERY wire and soft part under the hood, as the extinguishing agent is corrosive. I spent 3 times the standard extinguisher cost and got a halon-based agent, and while it's horrible for the environment I'd rather not replace my entire engine bay again.

I agree on spending the money and getting the Halon. That's all we use on the flightline in the Air Force as it would be an expensive day shooting a standard extinguisher down the intake of a F15...
