    The primary constituent of petroleum is octane.  Octane molecules store energy in long chains of chemical bonds.  When combined with a proper mix of oxygen and a spark, combustion will release the energy and produce water vapor and C02.  Some additional products of incomplete combustion are also created which become pollutants in our environment.
