Gasoline

Gasoline (n) or petrol (l) (see the etymology for naming differences) is a transparent, petroleum-derived flammable liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in most spark-ignited internal combustion engines. It consists mostly of organic compounds obtained by the fractional distillation of petroleum, enhanced with a variety of additives. On average, a order=flip barrel of crude oil can yield up to about order=flip of gasoline after processing in an oil refinery, depending on the crude oil assay and on what other refined products are also extracted.
