Minimum tools to have onboard

Hey All. Looking for a recommended list of minimum tools that should be carried onboard. I’m not an mx, and I don’t at this time do owner maintanence, I know my way around the plane and good with general wrenching knowledge. In the event of a precautionary landing at a remote A/P, I want to have a logical set of tools. Any suggestions?

Fixed and socket wrench sets for more standard AN bolts nuts like size 3/8 3/16 1/4 etc
LPS2
RTV
screwdriver for cheek panels and oil drain dollar cover and band clamps
zipties
Flashlight
Bulbs for postlights
multimeter if you swing that way
sparkplug and fuel injector sockets
solvent for fuel injectors
spare spark plugs and gaskets, and optionally a torque wrench
rags and mechanics wipes
windshield cleaning fluid
spare oil and camguard. At least two quarts of the said spare oil if you're traveling far.
spare oil filter
spare air inline filter
pulse oxymeter and sound meter and carbon monoxide detector (to check your sanity)
batteries for headset
spare underwear
battery trickle charger
cord to heat engine if travelling north and engine cover
drink bottle with a wide neck
a SPOT transmitter
adjustable wrench and pliers to complete the set
a good flexible bag to hold all of the above.
a towbar, chock and engine nostril covers, pitot cover


I'm sorry I got carried away and listed what I take with me, but I almost never load up all the seats.
Some of these items are more important than others when you're stuck at a remote airport.
