I have the Scott Drake ones in the cars but found this for under the hood. Won't leave residue and principle is sound I think.

The "Halon" type fire extinguisher, like the one at the top of this thread, won't leave any powder residue when used. But aim good, because they don't last very long.

Hey Curtis, I ended up going with this setup and couldnít be happier with it. Wouldíve liked to have a larger capacity extinguisher but couldnít spare the room inside the car. I plan on mounting another on to on the roll bar down tubes in the trunk. May not be the easiest to access in all situations but at least itíd be there as an option.

Go with the Element extinguishers. They never go bad, leave no residue, and you can get them with a very large capacity.

The main, it should be a powder fire extinguisher

I mustíve missed the Element extinguishers post until John just put the link up there but after watching some videos, thatís very impressive, especially considering you have 50 seconds of use in a super small package! I just ordered their E50 along with their roll bar mount. Iíll keep the other one I already have but wonít hurt to have an extra. Now I just need to find a mount for a pack of hot dogs and marshmallows!

Iím planning on buying one of the H3R Performance Halguard fire extinguishers also to replace a large 5 lb extinguisher I keep behind my seat.

Has anyone actually used an Element E50 for real or for training? I would hate to try a new technology extinguisher and find out it doesnít work as advertised when I most need it on my Camaro. I asked a Fire Chief what he thought about it and heíd never heard about them. I feel it would be a good backup for the Halguard.
