In the United Kingdom, the word benzole means a coal-tar product, consisting mainly of benzene and toluene. It was formerly mixed with petrol and sold as a motor fuel under the trade name National Benzole Mixture.

Confusingly, in certain countries like Germany, Ukraine, and Russia, the word "benzol" ("benzole") is also used as synonyms for "benzene", and benzene is often used as "gasoline".
