Depends what you want the fire extinguisher for? (apart from the
obvious). If it is for competition what do the regs say? If it is just
for peace of mind then something like a 1 litre hand help AFFF from
lifeline.

Halon is the best. We use it on aircraft because it's clean, non-
corrosive and extremely effective in displacing O. I don't believe
it's being manufactured anymore for environmental reasons, but you can
still buy it. Just can't refill it. Halotron has taken it's place.
Same thing, easier on the ozone. It isn't cheap, but then again what's
your Elan worth? Good luck!

I put Halotron's in both my Lotuses. Originally had the Halon in the
Esprit. 5LB in the Elan, 2 LB in the Esprit...IIRC. Primary intention
is to extinguish any fire on ME first!, then the car.

I carry an Amerex 1.4lb Halotron on board my road going Sprint. The
cylinder has the optional chrome plating. Measures 10" x 3.5". It's
very compact and includes a vehicle mounting bracket.

Here's the thread: http://www.amerex-fire.com/halotron.html
