Dreaming of fuel is fairly uncommon, but there is some interesting information in your dream that you could do with noticing.
Unclear to start with, fuel featuring in your dreams can have different symbolism, and you may wake up feeling disoriented and wondering what on earth your dream has to tell you.
Here’s everything you need to know.
What does Dreaming of Fuel Represent?
While there are many interpretations behind dreams of fuel or gasoline, most of them involve your intuition connected to your energy levels, motivation, and spiritual wellbeing.
Taking Stock of Your Energy Levels
It will come as no great shock that dreaming of fuel is a way of measuring your own energy levels.
A dream involving fuel is often your subconscious looking at where you are in life, how energized or drained you feel, what currently motivates you, and what makes you want to lie face-down and groan.
Seeing plenty of barrels of gasoline in your dream refers to an abundance of energy, and how you use this energy may be vital in the future, so choose carefully.
Not Having a Plan
Sometimes in life, we don’t feel the need to plan everything meticulously, and there are, of course, unexpected things that we just can’t factor into our days.
Dreaming of your car rolling to a stop because it’s run out of fuel suggests you are taking a large risk by not planning ahead of time. This may be proven shortly in waking life, where something you could have prepared for will bite you for not considering it.
This might be something fairly small, such as not planning for guests, receiving visitors, and feeling embarrassed at your (lack of) motivation to do household tasks, or having enough food in to accommodate a few people at a time.
Dreaming of fuel can point to bigger problems, too. Maybe you’re putting off doing a task, and you’re just hoping that you’ll never have to do it.
Chances are, you will, and you could save yourself a lot of pain by doing something before you need to.
Or, maybe you’re focusing on all the wrong things. Perhaps you’re putting others before yourself at the risk of your own health or wellbeing, or you’re devoting your time to a hobby you will abandon and won’t pick up again.
It’s worth pointing out that gasoline is a fossil fuel, and eventually, give or take a very long time, it will run out. Exactly like your energy levels. If you do something for too long, eventually you will crash.
This dream can be a warning to take care in exactly how you divide your time between your social life, your professional obligations, and your innermost goals or dreams.
Maybe you’ve been devoting too much time to one aspect of your life, while another will shortly need your attention. To make things easier, always try to keep some sort of balance within your life.
Temptation and Desire
As fuel, by its nature, is extremely flammable, your dream can be warning you to take care.
Maybe you feel tempted to do something which you know will be bad for you in the long run, but you want that instant gratification.
Or, it can point to finding the right passion for you, which will make you see things in a completely different way.
Maybe you’ve fallen out of love with a passion you once adored, and this dream is urging you to get back into it, whether that’s a hobby, a career, or reconnecting with a lost love.
Common Fuel Dreams and What They Mean
Dreaming of Filling up at a Gas Station
Dreaming of refilling your car at a gas station implies that you need to find some time to refuel your spirit. Current events in waking life have wiped out your vitality, your drive and thirst for life and everything it offers.
Your subconscious is telling you that you need to take some time out for yourself in order to restore your energy and motivation levels.
Do something that you enjoy, something that would normally give you a wealth of purpose, or something which allows you to turn your brain off for a little while.
Dreaming of Drinking Gasoline
If you dream of drinking gasoline, this reflects how a hobby, outlook, or career is ravaging your health or sense of wellbeing.
You may be working too hard to get the results you feel you need, or a complication has meant that simple tasks are much more difficult than they normally would be.
Remember to take some time for yourself, and make sure you recharge from time to time.
Your Car Breaking Down
Dreaming of your car drifting to a halt because the fuel has run out reflects how something in your waking life isn’t sustainable.
This may be a pace of life, an attitude, or something that’s motivating you, which will fizzle out in the long run.
Whatever it might be, it will affect your perception of exactly how much control you have over your life, and you need to find something else which gives you a sense of purpose and control.
Buying Barrels of Gasoline
If you dream of buying many barrels of gasoline, this suggests you may come into some money soon.
Maybe a bill will be a lot less than you’re expecting, or you’ll receive an unexpected windfall which will help you in the coming weeks. Whatever the reason, it will be a relief.
This may also refer to a different kind of wealth. Something that you value will steal all of your attention shortly. That may be a person close to you, where you will be able to watch them succeed, or you may need to help them out of a tough situation.
It also draws your attention to the need to keep something in reserve, whether that is financially, or something more philosophical.
If you dream of someone burning barrels of gasoline, this foretells an awkward encounter in your social life soon. You may struggle to trust someone after it.
