At roughly 17 minutes into the show, Horatio says that the trace chemicals on Brian's body were benzene, xylene, and ethanol. He goes on to declare that it is gasoline. However, benzene and xylene are unwanted compounds in gasoline due to hazardous combustion products and other unfavorable combustion characteristics. While trace amounts of these can exist in gasoline, ethanol is a common additive. Short chain non-cyclic hydrocarbons make the bulk of gasoline, but these were not detected.
