so I cleared a few things up by emailing fuel@b_m_.com
first, the thoughts about a fire extinguisher being a good investment and if you cant afford one yada yada.... I understand all that, but one of the info pages I read said you couldnt have an ABC, you needed just a CO2 20 lbs x 2. they are over $300 each, and while Im financially able to buy anything I want, that seems wasteful for a several Jerry cans of diesel. Anyway, they guy at email@example.com
says that an dry chemical extinguishers are ok, but you need two (ABC type)
and they are much cheaper and smaller per weight. They need to change the info page information.
also, I kinda figure that people bring a few small cans and dont have a bonefide fuel containment system and dont have 2 20 lb extinguishers, in fact I can almost guarantee it. but who wants to run into a problem if investigating ahead of time helps out. even if someone tries to annoy you .So the fuel guy says that even if you have just 2 x 5 gallon fuel cans, you need two extinguishers
. naturally he isnt going to comment on how strictly such is enforced, but since the ABC extinguishers are cheap, Ill just play by the rules exactly. they say for a collection of small cans you can use a fuel proof tarp and raised edges... try googling that up and its hard to find. in fact, fuel proof or fuel resistant tarp googled mostly brings you to the burningman page that recommends it, there really isnt such a thing easily available anyway. so go figure.
