How is gasoline made?


Gasoline starts out as crude oil that is pumped out of the ground by oil rigs and put into big drums to ship to refineries. The refineries send the crude oil through a process called fractional distillation. It is heated in a boiler using steam. This process vaporizes it before sending it to a distillation column. It is then sent to a big round container that has trays in it (kind of like a dehydrator with multiple trays). Here is where the heaver components of the oil will move to the bottom of the trays and the lighter components will rise towards the top. Once this separation is completed each individual component is processes further to its finished product. The lighter product is gasoline and the heaver products are used for things like plastic or lubricants. You can find more information here:

Gasoline is made from crude oil by heating it up and pumping it into separation towers. Then, at various levels in the tower when you siphon off the hot crude and you get a different oil product. Gasoline is is near the top. You can find more information here:
