ver abajo - see below; "constituyentes/compenentes de combustible fósil"


Explanation:
I've looked both on Britanica.com & Merriam-Webster for references to "fussil" & they are no matches. It would seem unlikely that this word should be so specialised that there would be no matches (maybe I'm wrong?). However, there are references to "fusil" and of course "fossil".
Fusil (noun)- relating to "French, literally, steel for striking fire"
Fusil (adj) - "made by melting and pouring into forms", CAST - "liquefied by heat", ie "fusible". Though these are archaic terms.

Is it just possible that the original text should be "fossil fuel constituents"? In which case, "constituyents/compenentes de combustible fósil" would be a good suggestion.

I hope this helps.

aceite fusel?


Explanation:
Fussel oil is is a poisonous mixture of amyl alcohols that is used as a solvent and in the manufacture of explosives and pure amyl alcohols. The word "fussel" comes from the German "fusel" (meaning bad liquor). I could not find an example of a Spanish translation.

Perhaps someone else can come up with a firm translation.
