Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thank HiD for posting this level headed analysis.

motor gasoline as opposed to avgas which is for aviation use.  Both are roughly the same size molecules though Avgas is usually seriously high octane IIRC.

Essense, en francaise??  (My french is really lame but I did have to call a French refiner in the middle of the night to talk about a visbreaker design about 1980. Elf Grandpuits which I think is near Paris)
