Organ Stew Is More Like It

a: Petroleum ~
b: organic soup with many ingredients

What: "Petroleum is like an organic soup with many ingredients, including sulfur-containing compounds. These are not useful in the fuel and are burned off as pollutants into the atmosphere, where they become a major factor in acid rain. Removing organic sulfur pollutants from fossil fuels has proved difficult because they are bonded tightly in the molecule and do not dissolve in water."
