So I have over 100 manual fire extinguishers.

I also have over a hundred automatic fire extinguishers

I also dont catch fire often (maybe once a month,give or take)

Sooooo

 

Should I sell all my crappy extinguishers at 1.5k apiece? Keep all of them in the case a forest fire breaks out all of the sudden (knock on unburnt wood)? Or sell none of them like a possessed hoarder?

Before you ask, yes, I forgot to correct that spelling error in the title. Whoops.

Basically, you catch fire so infrequently that it doesn't hurt to fun the auto kit.  You get less chance at fire and take less damage.   Sure, it costs 10-20 that match, but it's significantly less than 3k credits per game to run them. 

 

Literally no drawbacks, except on the profit of that particular match.  Sell the manuals, keep the autos.

Yeah sell them, you get so many auto extinguishers from rewards its practically impossible to run out of them unless you play a POS tank like the T55A that catches fire every time.

Sell the manuals, keep enough autos to keep tanks equipped, especially low HP ones, but sell the rest. I find that, with low HP tanks, you NEED an Auto-Extinguisher before you can already have died by fire in the time it takes to trigger a manual one.

Sell all the manual ones, and offload some of the Auto ones too. I usually only keep 20 of the autos around and have yet to run out, they seem to pile up decently. If you have manual extinguishers in tanks swap them with the autos.

Are you thinking of selling them just because?  Or do you have a purchase in mind that costs credits?  If you have no purchase in mind, hold on to those manual fire extinguishers as a sort of rainy day fund.  Should you suddenly find you need a quick infusion of credits, you know you have them.  If you sell them just because, it's easy come, easy go.

I sell all FE's including automatics. I will take the credits now and just buy one every 100-200 games I need one. Sure sometimes I'll have a bad streak and use 3 or 4 in a 100 game stretch but I'll take that. I don't keep any.

 

Edit: I didn't start doing this until after all my tanks were equipped with one, so early on I kept them all.

I would have said switch to the better fire extinguisher for better benefits and sell the rest. I only use the manual ones for tier 5 and under games which I rarely play nowadays.

I mount the larger consumables on all my tanks to get the passive bonuses but rarely ever use them in combat for repairs or healing. The automatic extinguisher has gone off just once, nothing you can do about that. Since most of the games I have played are absolute blow outs (one way or the other), I see little point in burning a kit that will have little effect on the inevitable. If a game is close and it looks like I can contribute a bit more or if I am close to completing a mission for a campaign, I will use one. They are far too expensive to use otherwise. I haven't ever bought one and have hundreds in my Depot. 

That said, I sell all my small kits although I tend to keep 50 of the manual extinguishers for some reason (really don't know why) and sell any that I get beyond that amount. I sell all my small med and repair kits though... I don't play much and only play low tier so I tend to be "poor" in the game so every bit of silver is a help.
