Interestingly both systems..(the first I found) have the option of triggering a warning light... this could be used to trigger the explosive battery coupling! Extra safe Thumbs Up #

So totally automatic, and as far as the fire suppression goes not reliant on electricity! I wonder how much you could reduce your insurance with such a system??


I wouldn’t be surprised if the first system you found was actually a rebranded Firetrace one as they developed the melting tube system a number of years ago.

I don’t think in the car insurance market it makes much difference in insurance, Firetrace supply a lot to the air cooled VW world in fact a mate has one of their systems on one of his vans and I don’t think it makes any difference to his insurance.

Now being revealed by Liverpool Mayor that fire started in a 16 year old vehicle ( not named) which had been, and I quote, converted to an alternative fuel system.

Resurrecting this thread as I saw this video in my YouTube feed:




God knows why they are binning a perfectly good looking Hilux. Discovery next to it too.

Maybe there was no way of getting to them? Shell of the building was obviously compromised with the fire!

Exactly, there was no easy way of removing any of the undamaged cars from the top as the structure of the building was completely unsafe.

The fire even burned completely though the concrete floors of the lower decks. I didn’t even realise that was possible until I saw the internal photos.

concrete doesn't burn, but it does expand at a different rate to the steel reinforcing.... basically the steel has swelled up much more than the rest of the structure and the floor has popped.... bit like popcorn... but hotter!!

Is that the ill fated HiLux in the back ground of your picture?? Yesterday I couldn't spell Engineer... Today I are one!

There is also no telling what the heat may have done to the vehicles on the top - might be all sorts of melted and scorched rubber, trim, seals and fluids etc, even if they look ok. The insurance assessors will have written them off regardless - its cheaper (ironically) and simpler, than try to salvage them. We had it recently in Carmarthen in the flooding in October - a few car garages had a number of cars axle deep in flood water overnight. The insurance assessors wrote them off instantly - some were brand new - rather than take the risk of there being issues later. Current Fleet:-
