Did you measure 175 in you car's interior? Wow! That's astounding! That would be quickly fatal. (You may be yanking my chain)

Did you have an extinguisher in that vehicle?

No, the article states UL laboratory requirements of a fire extinguisher, to be UL approved/labelled.

This ...

the Underwriters Laboratory label. The laboratory requires that extinguishers can be safely stored at minus-40 to plus-120 degrees, a standard that is sometimes posted on the extinguisher.But the laboratory also requires that extinguishers survive 175 degrees for seven days, which is not normally disclosed in product information. A quality, UL-listed extinguisher has a steel cylinder that is designed to withstand six times its normal pressure without bursting.
is the assurance I've been looking for.

I thank you!
