My friend was stranded in her car last evening when she went to use her cell phone it was dead. She told me she was so thankful she had listened to her Dad's advice which I decided to pass along to you for yourself or someone you care about.
These are must haves for your car: A blanket, flashlight, gallon of unopened spring water, antifreeze, an extra quart of oil and jumper cables. You need to know where your spare is, and MAKE sure you have a jack. Of course there's other items like a first aid kit, flares, and reflective triangle.
Use a moving crate to keep all your goods in. The new dry gas will get you about 20 miles, expensive but worth it if you are stuck without gas! Hope I have helped someone!
Oh and one more thing, she learned last evening; have a cell phone charger in your car. If your cell phone is working, there is a Road side assistance 800# on the back of your TX driver's license. I would hope all states offer that.
