Agreed. but TBH, it its my vehicle, i will make sure all of the family is out first, then let it burn (once a car is on fire, is it even possible to get the smell out and salvage it). It is mostly used for the "other guy" scenario.
In actuality, the reason I first put one in my car (dating back a long time ago), was bc of a fire pit that got out of control and one of the guys just walked to his car and put it out like a boss. As I have gotten older, there have been a few instances where I could have helped a lot more if I had one.
