Ah, need to sort my fire extinguisher.
What was the recommended/acceptable one again?

EDIT:

OK, found this a few pages back and have ordered a 1kg Dry Power.

I've just spoken to Darin to clarify this as the MLR regs say 1.75kg and when I searched I couldn't find a 1.75kg extinguisher! The usual car size is 1 kg dry powder or 1.75lt aqueous foam. He is now quite happy with either of these, the cheapest is the 1kg powder which can be bought for about £20 on ebay. It should be mounted within reach of the driver.

The method for mounting I used when I took part in the MLR 30-130 was to make a plate up which was secured with heavy duty velcrose in place of the cover in the passenger footwell.
Are you 100% sure on this Barry?
