I've been wondering about this since I was a child:
How do dragons spit fire? Do they run on gasoline, and if they do, where and how do they fill up? Do they eat regular food too, or is their entire system on gasoline? How do they ignite the flame in the first place? Is there a little pilot flame that's on all the time? Even at night? What if it goes out? How do they re-light it? Do they have to wait for a lightning?
All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home
I can't believe you're asking this in all seriousness. Have you seen a fire-breathing dragon recently? No, I'm sure you haven't. Cos the cost of gasoline has gone up so much they can't afford to fill up.
I believe that there is a conversion kit for changing them over to bio-diesel, available in every country except the US.

You should ask Mr. Terry Pratchett, or better yet, read "Guards! Guards!" You will learn dragons, at least those of the Draco Vulgaris (swamp dragon) kind can readjust their internal plumbing in ways that allow them to convert almost every (in-)edible thing into fire. What may seem like an advantage to you usually ends up being a disadvantage to the dragon since they've never really mastered the art of chemistry, AS A CERTAIN INDIVIDUAL WHO ALWAYS SPEAKS IN CAPITALS WOULD AGREE.
