Video: How To Light A Fire With A Car And Corn Sticks
Tim O'Neill's rally school instructor, Wyatt Knox, released a video showing how a car can help light a fire.
- According to him, the simplest thing is to use a regular cigarette lighter, the heating of which is enough to set fire to dry foliage. However, not all modern cars have a cigarette lighter, or it may be lost.
- In this case, there is another way: to ignite the grass with electricity. This will require "crocodiles", which are usually used to "light" cars with dead batteries, and some small metal part (for example, a paper clip). Knox suggests closing the electrical circuit from the car battery to a paper clip, and in this case, the paper clip turns into a heating element. You just need to put dry grass and leaves on it in advance.
If dry fuel is not at hand, Knox suggests draining some gasoline, but warns that this should only be done as a last resort. And from the unobvious improvised materials for ignition, he mentions … corn sticks or corn chips. According to him, they burn for quite a long time and are well suited for the role of an impromptu torch, with which you can warm up and light damp wood chips or foliage.
Both ways to light a fire are clearly shown in the video below. He's in English, but even without knowing the language, it's clear what Knox is doing.
