Read the wiki? http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:fuel

that lists various octane ratings, LPG, wood, electric, diesel...

It misses on various things as it is designed for amenity=fuel ...
but has been expanded for amenity=bbq ... that expansion has not followed the same system though.

You can change it .. or make proposals here. Just don't change the existing values and it should be fine.
I'd think you'd be adding heating oils, propane and kerosene.
I'd leave the avgas and jet fuel for later when aviation types want it, not something you normally see for sale.
'Opal' fuel is a special petrol that exists in 'outback' Australia .. maybe that could be added.
it discourages kids sniffing petrol and ending up without brains. Some people use avgas in their vehicles for the same purpose.
