62. In my car I am prepared for all of those and more.
Fuel guage malfunction - Fill car at half a tank. Always have an idea of about how far car has driven since last fill-up. I would quickly spot a fuel guage problem.

Chain saw for fallen tree? Better solution is a GPS to route me around such problems. It can also route me around construction zones and traffic tie-ups.

Water? Yes, two liters. The car is an old one, 1995 Saturn, and sometimes needs additional coolant.

Electrical tape? Yes, in a small emergency tool box.

Also carry:

Cell phone - on my person. Of course most people do that now.

Fire extinguisher. Over my life I have used it twice to help others. Once I kept a car's flames suppressed while the mother got her baby out of the baby seat. No personal heroics involved as I was never in danger, but I am rather pleased with myself for being able to help save the baby's life.

You make a false assumption. You assume that a person goes from home to school and back. Often people make other stops, combining errands to save on gas and time. Since trouble never makes appointments many of us carry all the time, everywhere. We who have CHLs present no danger to the general public. Your fear of us is irrational.
