Wouldn't suggest keeping any food in the boot, or anywhere else in the car. It's a sure shot way of attracting rats. Even if your home / office parking is safe from rodents, outside parking spots won't be.

Default Re: Must-Have Items in the boot of your car

Apart from the regular accessories that came with the car, I have added the following items:

1. Tyre inflator (Motocop - Slightly less than 4 years Old, now)
2. 2T Hydraulic Jack (Trolley Type)
3. Pressure Gauge / Glass or Windshield breaker / Seat Belt Cutter
4. Jopasu Duster
5. USB charger

After going through this thread, I think it is good to have the following things:
1. Emergency Light
2. Jump Start Cable
3. Tow rope

Good point, never though of it since the parking spots usually don't have the rodent menace. Will have this consumed today over some TV Series.

I usually don't keep anything in the boot apart from the first aid kit, wheel jack and tools, and a couple of my cars have the spare wheel in the boot itself due to there being no dedicated space!
