Uh, no. Not really. It doesn't get that hot and they don't do that.

I've got one, so I was legal for the Oregon Dunes! Never took it out.

Seen it done. Except it was a 36" high reflective MUTCD compliant cone on his head and he was doing it because he was high on ex and thought it was normal. He was fired shortly thereafter....

Yes. Usually its not used on your own vehicle. Its used on someone else's that you stumble upon and is on fire. Especially if that someone happens to be trapped in the car.

I know nothing about extinguishers lol

So, a small dry chemical unit could do the job (A/B/C)?

Yup. Though I'd get whatever is the largest available that you can fit nicely where you're going to store it. Those little 1lb ones don't do a whole lot. 2-5lb would be ideal. I used to have a massive 20lb one in the back of my truck, a little excessive.

I have everything but a fire extinguisher in my truck.

If my truck catches on fire, I am going to let it burn. It is 20 years old, if it catches fire, I will pull out some marshmallows and make smores

Haha. Well like I said, most people never use their car fire extinguisher on their own car. I have seen them used on many other people's cars and bystanders pretty much save someone's life with it.

I do however have the same outlook on my own vehicle.

rookies yes put one i your truck. look at it this way. your driving down the road and you see what looks to be just an over heating car. you stop and see if you can help and that's when it goes bad. fire under the hood and going into the driver compartment. with there windows up how to help them? take your fire extinguisher and brake out the glass and pull them out or if needed start spraying down the fire to get them out. one other thing. its a 100 degree summer day and you go to the store. when you get out of your truck you find people yelling and screaming. yo go check it out. its a small babe locked in a hot car. now you have something to get that window open if needed!!!!!!! sorry to make long post im just anal on safety and the what if's

Maglite's and dedicated windows punches work good for the breaking out windows as well.
