Yes, gasoline is/is not toxic. The word toxic in itself has
approximately 4,566,345 definitions. Under EPA 313 regs,
it is not toxic. If you drink three gallons, you will probably croak.

Gasoline is not a single component system. It contains many
chemical compounds. Some of them, namely benzene, have been
implicated as carcinogenic compounds.
