Items You Should Definitely Have in Your Vehicle

Take a look AMSOIL's online shop or call Vaughan Distributing at (307) 413-1011 to get all of the high quality products you require to maintain your vehicle perfectly, including the best synthetic oil in Jackson.

A Few Tools and Equipment

The first things you should make sure that are always in your vehicle, are a few tools and equipment. After all, a flat tire, an overheated engine, or a dead battery can happen at any time, meaning you could get stranded in the middle of nowhere. To get out of those annoying and potentially dangerous situations that happen due to a technical malfunction, you need to have certain equipment handy. Still, that's not all you'll need: those items will also have to be in optimum condition so they can work as desired. Moreover, you need to have the knowledge to employ them correctly (enroll in a class if you're clueless in this area). Without this, it won't make much sense to keep anything in your vehicle. To have a better idea of what your equipment should include, refer to the list below:
  • a tire iron
  • a spare tire
  • jumper cables
  • a tire jack
  • a new gas can
  • a bottle of coolant
  • reflective triangles
  • a siphon pump

An Emergency Kit

While having a spare tire will be incredibly useful if you have a flat, it won't be able to help you much if you injure yourself in your vehicle. That's why it's also crucial that you have an emergency kit in your vehicle that can help you deal with an injury, a natural disaster, a car wreck, or other unforeseen circumstance that may arise. Still, for it to be of use, you should inspect it on a more-or-less regular basis. During your inspections, be sure that everything is in good condition. Also, notice if there's something that needs to be restocked/replaced. This, so your emergency kit is always ready for anything. Likewise, learn how to use all of the items in your emergency kit, so it can serve its purpose effectively. As for the tools and items you should keep in your emergency kit, here are a few ideas:
  • bottled water
  • non-perishable foods
  • blankets
  • a fire extinguisher
  • charged cell phone and its charger
  • basic medical equipment (such as alcohol, band-aids, disposable gloves, syringes, and thermometers).
  • medicine (like antihistamines, antiseptics, antibiotics, paracetamol, etc.)

Keep your engine going strong for a long time with help from AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil, the most effective synthetic oil in Jackson.

The Necessary Papers and Information

There can be certain occasions in which having the right information or documents will keep you from getting into trouble. For example, if you have been pulled over by a police officer when you're driving your vehicle, you will need your license and registration handy, so you won't get fined, detained, or get your vehicle taken away from you. Likewise, if you have an accident, you should have the contact information of your insurance agency, as well as of some friends and family that can help you handle the sticky situation in a smooth and effective way. Remember to include the following when thinking about what papers and information you need to have in your vehicle:
  • the contact information of trustworthy friends and/or relatives
  • the contact information of a reliable mechanic
  • the contact information of the authorities
  • your insurance papers and/or information
  • an updated version of your license
  • an updated version of your vehicle's registration
  • your vehicle's owner's manual

Some Miscellaneous Items

Finally, it's also a good idea to keep a few miscellaneous items that could come in handy in certain situations (like if there's bad weather, or if you need to clean something up). However, while it's recommended that you keep miscellaneous items in your vehicle, this isn't leeway to make your vehicle into a trash can. Only keep what's necessary in it, so you don't end up with a heavy vehicle that spends more gasoline and doesn't perform smoothly. Some of these items can be:
  • emergency cash
  • a bottle of hand sanitizer
  • tissues
  • an umbrella
  • a lighter
  • a pair of scissors
  • a change of clothes and a jacket
  • a flashlight
  • batteries
