I will also buy an Element 50 for the car.
I wonder if the H3R A344T leaks as badly as the H3R model A400 that I had in my RV-8A. I found that they would only last 2-3 years before they had to be discarded and replaced. Pretty bad for a product that expensive, especially since halon isn't supposed to be released into the atmosphere except for emergency use. I have household & hangar fire extinguishers (standard ABC types) that still have full pressure on the gauge 20 years after purchasing, so there's no reason H3R shouldn't be able to do the same.
