Do you dream of putting gasoline in your car or filling the fuel tank? Dreaming of fuel can have many different meanings that can give you insight into the current things that are happening in your life.
What does it mean to dream of gasoline or fuel?
To understand the meaning of fuel in our dreams, it is important to think about the function of fuel in the “real world”. For many of us who drive a car every day to work, school or other places, we rely heavily on the fuel in our cars. Fuel is what makes our cars run.
Cars and driving in dreams are often related to control. If you are “behind the wheel” and driving a car in your dreams, it often shows how much control you can feel over a situation. If you dream of putting fuel in your car or see gasoline in your dreams, it is important to think about the context.
Ask yourself these questions to understand the meaning of the dream:
- What general mood did you feel during the dream?
- What kind of fuel did you see in the dream? Was it an old rusty gas can in the corner of a garage or were you filling up the car at a busy modern gas station?
- Was there a number related to fuel? Was there a price associated with the amount of gasoline ?
- What other events occurred in the dream?
- Were there other prominent symbols in the dream?
- Are you driving the car or are you a passenger?
- What other people were present in the dream?
Here are some common meanings for gasoline and fuel in dreams:
Fuel as energy:
Fuel is a source of energy. Seeing fuel in a dream is definitely a sign that you might want to think about your current energy levels in your life. The context of how you experienced the fuel in the dream is going to give you many clues as to how you feel about your current energy.
If you dreamed that you ran out of gas while driving, it could mean that you are not using your own personal energy during the day wisely.
Dreaming of an abundance of fuel or gasoline, like gasoline spurting from a pump, could mean that you are feeling very excited about an upcoming project or event.
Need to rest and recharge
We often see gas stations as a place to rest and recharge. When we are driving on a road trip, it is not uncommon for us to stop at a gas station to take a break from driving and refuel not only our cars, but also to have a drink or a snack to keep our physical body going.
If the gas station seems to be a central focus of the dream, it is very likely that you need a break from something that has taken up a lot of your time and energy recently. Ask yourself: Are you giving yourself enough personal time for self-care?
Dream that you run out of fuel
Dreaming that you are running out of gas while driving can mean something deeper, beyond needing a break or recharging in your personal life. This can often symbolize that you feel like things are overwhelming or out of control. After all, if your car doesn’t have gas, you can’t make it go anywhere, no matter how hard you try!
let things go to waste
Gasoline is a very expensive commodity, especially with so many fluctuations and variables in the oil market industry. If you dream of fuel spilling, this can suggest that you are letting something go to waste. Are there opportunities in your current life that you may not be taking full advantage of?
passion and volatility
Fuel is a very volatile and highly flammable substance, only the vapors are capable of burning. If you see gasoline burning in a dream, it could suggest that you have very passionate feelings about something. Keep in mind, however, that a gasoline fire often starts abruptly and fiercely, but it’s not something that lasts forever.
