In automotive, fuel is a substance used to power a vehicle. Several types of fuels are used in vehicles, including gasoline, diesel, and electricity.
- Gasoline is a hydrocarbon-based fuel that is commonly used in internal combustion engines.
- Diesel is a fuel made from petroleum commonly used in diesel engines.
- Electricity can be used as fuel for electric vehicles powered by an electric motor rather than an internal combustion engine.
Fuel is stored in a vehicle tank and delivered to the engine through a fuel delivery system. The fuel is burned in the engine to create energy, which is used to power the vehicle.
