Petrol is a mixture of lots of different liquids and dissolved gases.
If you're intent on being that accurate, you'd need to know the exact
composition, it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.  Probably
commercial secrets.

Harry,

I agree some fuels are mixtures; I'm using ideal chemistry for
Gasoline (octane), #2 diesel (cetane), SVO (I think canola/rapeseed),
and bio-diesel (don't know yet). The point isn't prefect accuracy, but
rather a mathematical equivalence between the fuels.
