Still, is gasoline potential or kinetic energy?
The energy stored in gasoline is released by burning it (combustion). During combustion, chemical bonds are broken and reformed (changing gasoline into byproducts such as water and carbon dioxide) releasing energy. There are many examples of chemical potential energy being converted to kinetic energy to do work.
On top of, what kind of energy is a car? You can see that a car engine transfers chemical energy , which is stored in the fuel, into kinetic energy in the engine and wheels.
On top of everything, which type of energy is contained in a tank of gasoline?
Is gasoline a liquid or gas?
Gasoline, also spelled gasolene, also called gas or petrol, mixture of volatile, flammable liquid hydrocarbons derived from petroleum and used as fuel for internal-combustion engines. It is also used as a solvent for oils and fats.

Etymology. "Gasoline" is an English word that denotes fuel for automobiles. The Oxford English Dictionary dates its first recorded use to 1863, when it was spelled "gasolene". ... The word is a derivation from the word "gas" and the chemical suffixes "-ol" and "-ine" or "-ene".
There are five types of kinetic energy: radiant, thermal, sound, electrical and mechanical.
The different types of energy
include thermal energy, radiant energy, chemical energy, nuclear energy
, electrical energy, motion energy, sound energy, elastic energy and gravitational energy.
There are several forms of potential energy. Kinetic energy is motion — of waves, electrons, atoms, molecules, substances, and objects. Chemical Energy is energy stored in the bonds of atoms and molecules. Batteries, biomass, petroleum, natural gas, and coal are examples of stored chemical energy.
All of the energy from the Sun that reaches the Earth arrives as solar radiation, part of a large collection of energy called the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. Solar radiation includes visible light, ultraviolet light, infrared, radio waves, X-rays, and gamma rays.
We get chemical energy from foods, which we use to run about, and move and talk (kinetic and sound energy). Chemical energies are stored in fuels which we burn to release thermal energy - this is one way of making electricity, see Electricity for more information.
Potential energy is stored energy while kinetic energy is the energy of motion. When potential energy is used it is converted into kinetic energy.
Fossil fuels principally consist of carbon and hydrogen bonds. There are three types of fossil fuels which can all be used for energy provision; coal, oil and natural gas. Coal is a solid fossil fuel formed over millions of years by decay of land vegetation.
