petrolium and coal are called fossil fuels because plants and animal wastes are burried under earth's crust millions of years ago and they are limited
please give a thums up if i am not wrong
they are called fossil fuels because they are formed from fossils buried deep under the earth's surface . they're formed by the decomposition of biomass.
I HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW....dead reamains of living beings r called fossils...there4, the fuel formed by decomposition of it shud b called fossil fuels..
you could also say,
fossils are formed over millions of years, so fossil fuels are those which take millions of years to form.
It is not ' petrolium '.......it's ' Petroleum'.
