The Distillate fuels of the past required less refining to produce than Gasoline. Before the technology developed to "Crack" the Gasoils into lighter products such as gasoline the distilate cuts were plentiful and therefore less expense than gasoline. The distillates do not vaporize as easily as gasoline so they must be heated through the use of a heated manifold to perform well. Today Kerosene is similar to the Historical Distillates however it is not exactly the same. Ethanol is an alcohol produced from plants at is not related in any way to distillate fuels.
