Many huge plants grew, decayed and died.
Different fossil fuels are derived from different sources. The fossil fuels which are formed from the remains of marine plants and animals are crude oil and natural gas.
540 Million years ago
Well, they are technically still forming, but fossil fuels form over millions of years. We call it non-renewable because there is no way for us to form more of it ourselves in our lifetimes. If we use it all up, it is gone, and we won't be alive when another big supply of it would be available.
Geologic records evidence of abundant fossil is 540 Million Years ago during the Paleozoic Era.
Only a million ? Then you might get peat.

a fossil that has been underground for million years
it is a fossil copy of an organism filled withsediment or mineral deposits.

The potatoes are not the fossil fuels.But they can turn into fossil fuels once buried in soil for million years.
a Cast fossil is formed when the mold is filled with another material forming a cast.
The rock around a Phacops fossil is probably 405 and 365 million years old.
