Before you look, what's the number one item that all of these lists have in common?
Correct, an emergency first aid kit.
Then they go on to add things like Fire Starters and emergency blankets, but if you've got the kit above those two things come included. Here are 4 other items that topped the lists in order of popularity. There are obviously going to be a lot of items you "could" pack in your car, but we're talking about the necessities here.
Jumper Cables - you never know when your battery, or someone else's will die.
Duct Tape - This stuff can do everything from removing splinters to repairing fenders.
Multitool - Tighten an air filter or fix tail light.
