Fire Extinguishers for Cars & Vans

There is currently no UK legislation requiring private cars to carry fire extinguishers, though prudent drivers may wish to carry small dry powder extinguisher would be ideal. However, vans and small commercial vehicles should carry a 2kg ABC dry powder extinguisher. Commercial vehicles which carry dangerous goods (CDG) require ABC type fire extinguishers; the capacity will vary according to the load of the vehicle.
