  1. Gasoline

    Gasoline, or petrol, is a transparent, petroleum-derived oil that is used primarily as a fuel in internal combustion engines. It consists mostly of organic compounds obtained by the fractional distillation of petroleum, enhanced with a variety of additives. Some gasolines also contain ethanol as an alternative fuel.

Under normal ambient conditions, its material state is liquid, unlike liquefied petroleum gas or natural gas.
