My emergency car kit

Just to be clear I probably carry 80% of this all the time, the rest: spade, both puncture kits, ice tracks etc are only put in the frunk for longer trips/certain times of the year.

It may appear at first like a lot but as you can see from the above photo it fills the frunk of my Tesla P90DL Facelift around 70-90% so not that bad with the odd thing like jackets and boots kept in the rear and battery pack kept inside the car.

Alongside this I also have two emergency grab bags that contain a lot more equipment but I will stick to what I carry in the car in this post.

  • 24 LED Strobe Beacon (note this has a magnetic base, the Tesla is made from glass and aluminium so it won’t stick, I’ve got two of these Delkin Camera Mounts that I was thinking of securing to it but it adds a lot of weight so I’m not sure. I may do a DIY job on it and fix some suckers to it at some point but in reality the only time I probably will use it is when I get a puncture/helping someone out on the side of the road so I won’t really need to drive with it on the roof. I also picked up an extension cable for the cigarette lighter should I want to place the beacon on the floor or elsewhere.
  • Flashing Road Flare – Not as bright as I had hoped but still pretty good, Lidl supposedly do similar ones sometimes
  • 2 x clip on strobes – Ideal to clip on to your person if working on the car
  • Rechargeable Portable LED Work Light – Trying to fix a puncture is crap in the best of times, without a decent light it can be almost impossible at night
  • LED Head Torch
  • Light for our dog – Often he is in the back of the car, he often has one on his collar anyway but I keep a spare in the car
  • Some glow sticks – Always useful, could chuck on the road as a sort of flare/cone
  • LED Lenser Torch – Mostly used for dog walking but I keep it in the car most of the time
Organised mess after I’ve had a sort out and ‘installed’ a boot organiser in the frunk (I’m not that happy as the fit is rather poor but it will do for now)



Car repair:

I still haven’t sorted a spare wheel, jack but do have a torque wrench and bar
