Fire extinguishers

Regulations for an overseas hillclimb state a minimum of a 2KG hand held extinguisher in car, all the current ones seem to be in Litres, I have a 2 Litre foam one in at the moment, is that the equivalent?

The regulations may refer to FIA appendix J 253, where for hillclimbs it gives the extinguisher sizes, for powder (yes powder), Zero 360, Viro 3 and FX G-Tec it says 2kgs and for AFFF it says 2.4 litres

http://www.fia.com/regulation/category/123 see pages 6 and 7

Think this is right

 AFFF 2.4 litres
 FX G‐TEC 2.0 kg
