    Hola,

    I'm trying to translate a presentation for an energy assistance grant program--and I'm a little unsure of which words I should be using for the following list of heating sources (homes, apartments, etc.):

    Gas
    Oil
    Propane
    Kerosene

    Here is my translation:

    Gas natural
    Gasoleo
    Propano
    Queroseno

    I'm especially unsure about which word to use for 'oil'- others I found in Spanish were 'petroleo', 'fuel oil,' 'gas'...

    Thank you for your help!
