  • 2-Ethoxyethanol
    2-Ethoxyethanol, also known by the trademark Cellosolve or ethyl cellosolve, is a solvent used widely in commercial and industrial applications.
  • Petroleum ether
    Petroleum ether is the petroleum fraction consisting of aliphatic hydrocarbons and boiling in the range 35‒60 °C; commonly used as a laboratory solvent.
  • Benzene
    Benzene is an important organic chemical compound with the chemical formula C6H6.
  • Diesel fuel
    Diesel fuel /ˈdiːzəl/ in general is any liquid fuel used in diesel engines, whose fuel ignition takes place, without spark, as a result of compression of the inlet air mixture and then injection of fuel.
  • Ethylene
    Ethylene (IUPAC name: ethene) is a hydrocarbon which has the formula C2H4 or H2C=CH2.
  • Fuel oil
    In Australia the term "distillate" refers specifically to diesel fuel.
  • Gasoline
    Gasoline /ˈɡæsəliːn/, also known as petrol /ˈpɛtrəl/ outside North America, is a transparent, petroleum-derived liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in internal combustion engines.
  • Propene
    Propene, also known as propylene or methyl ethylene, is an unsaturated organic compound having the chemical formula C3H6.
  • Toluene
    Toluene /ˈtɒljuːiːn/, also known as toluol /ˈtɒljuːɒl/, is a colorless, water-insoluble liquid with the smell associated with paint thinners.
  • Xylene
    Xylene (from Greek ξύλο, xylo, "wood"), xylol or dimethylbenzene is any one of three isomers of dimethylbenzene, or a combination thereof.
  • Paraffin wax
    Paraffin wax is a white or colourless soft solid derivable from petroleum, coal or oil shale, that consists of a mixture of hydrocarbon molecules containing between twenty and forty carbon atoms.
  • Naphtha
    Naphtha (/ˈnæpθə/ or /ˈnæfθə/) is a general term that has been used for over two thousand years to refer to flammable liquid hydrocarbon mixtures.
  • Jet fuel
    Jet fuel, aviation turbine fuel (ATF), or avtur, is a type of aviation fuel designed for use in aircraft powered by gas-turbine engines.
  • Oil sands
    Oil sands, or more technically bituminous sands, are a type of unconventional petroleum deposit.
  • Propane
    Propane (/ˈproʊpeɪn/) is a three-carbon alkane with the molecular formula C3H8, a gas, at standard temperature and pressure, but compressible to a transportable liquid.
  • Carbon black
    Carbon black (subtypes are acetylene black, channel black, furnace black, lamp black and thermal black) is a material produced by the incomplete combustion of heavy petroleum products such as FCC tar, coal tar, ethylene cracking tar, and a small amount from vegetable oil.
  • Mineral oil
    A mineral oil is any of various colorless, odorless, light mixtures of higher alkanes from a mineral source, particularly a distillate of petroleum.
  • Motor oil
    Motor oil, engine oil, or engine lubricant is any of various substances (comprising oil enhanced with additives, for example, in many cases, extreme pressure additives) that are used for lubrication of internal combustion engines.
  • Heating oil
    Heating oil, or oil heat, is a low viscosity, liquid petroleum product used as a fuel oil for furnaces or boilers in buildings.
  • E85
    E85 is an abbreviation for an ethanol fuel blend of 85% denatured ethanol fuel and 15% gasoline or other hydrocarbon by volume.
  • Cadalene
    Cadalene or cadalin (4-isopropyl-1,6-dimethylnaphthalene) is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon with a chemical formula C15H18 and a cadinane skeleton.
  • Retene
    Retene, methyl isopropyl phenanthrene or 1-methyl-7-isopropyl phenanthrene, C18H18, is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon present in the coal tar fraction, boiling above 360 °C.
  • Common ethanol fuel mixtures
    Several common ethanol fuel mixtures are in use around the world.
  • Petrox
    Petrox was a detergent additive used from 1954 to 1989 by Texaco, in its premium-grade "Sky Chief" gasoline.
  • Dilbit
    A dilbit is a bitumen diluted with one or more lighter petroleum products, typically natural-gas condensates such as naphtha.
