Fuel Sources


Motor vehicle environments have rich repositories of combustible materials, each of which may be considered as an initial fuel related to fire origin and as secondary fuels in fire propagation. Fuel sources exist in the three material states of liquids, solids and gases.

This section covers flammability characteristics of each of these sources. Choose the fuel source from the list below or continue by clicking “next.”
