    Caps are cheap so I would stock several combo's.

    30/5, 35/5, 40/5, 40/7.5, 50/7.5

    For indoor air handles they are even cheaper. I would suggest you carry a 3, 5, 7 microfarad as a minimum.

    3, 4, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 70, 80

    Then there is the plethora of dual capacitors. :x
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Isn't there a "one size fits all" capacitor that can be user configured to replace most all caps out there. I heard it isn't cheap but it reduces the need to stock a ton of different values.

    Is it any better quality then the current crop of crapy quality caps?

    Yes,
    Its not cheap. Once used you need another one. I really don't see the value. I can buy all the caps I need for the price of two of these multi service caps.

    yes there is a universal capacitor i have two one that is a dual run for ac then the other is just a run. I use those only when i need to. usually put it on for a temporary repair then return with the exact match. You should carry at least one for truck stock.
    I am here to provide you with every option I know of but if you make a stupid decision don't blame me.

    Ever since I saw the movie "Three Amigos" when I was in high school, plethora has been one of my favorite unwonted words to use, whenever it is apropos.

    A couple more in there for Twilli to look up.
