If your engines are combusting, you may want to have someone look at them...

It's hard to build a tall hut when you are on your knees...

OK. By that measure, it's 14 for me.

The above includes 2 gensets among 12 vehicles (7 are 2-wheelers). Note that I have no gas trimmers, nor chainsaws to count. Mine are all electric.

Oh, this reminded me that I still have a gas mower that I have not used and need to get rid off.

It is true that combustion engines are also combustible.

While I have to take my chances with the 2-wheelers and the cars, I carry fire extinguishers in my RV, because a motorhome often catches fire from the house section, and not from the engine compartment. Well, it may not make much of a difference. Like this. Observe the propane tank pressure relief valve starting to vent intermittently at 2:15, then continuously at 2:42.



Or the following class A whose fire seemed to start from the propane fridge. That's a nice diesel with a tag axle.



Or this one that started from the rear bedroom, while parked in a residential area.
