In many processes, part of the energy is lost - in the sense of getting converted into an unusable form of energy. This is no exception. Specifically, when a substance is burned - in this case the gasoline - the chemical energy is converted to heat energy, which is a "lower grade" type of energy. That is to say, it is no longer possible to convert all the heat into other types of energy.
Gasoline isn't changed into energy, because it is matter, and matter only changes form (it turns into carbon monoxide among other things). However, if what you are asking is, what kind of energy is produced when gasoline is burned in an engine, then you get kinetic energy (the heat builds pressure which causes kinetic energy when the rods are forced to move)
Mechanical energy can create thermal energy by doing work on a substance, such as compressing a gas, or by friction as in brakes on a vehicle, which get very hot under braking.
One of the most common energy conversions involves the changing of potential energy to kinetic energy or kinetic energy to potential energy.Answer:Eventually all energy is transformed into heat.

Chemical energy in the gasoline is released by burning a mixture of 'atomized' gasoline and air. Most of the energy is used to heat the surrounding air, by means of the engine's cooling system. The remaining small part of the energy is used to turn the engine parts, which transfer the kinetic energy to the vehicle by way of the transmission and the wheels. When the vehicle needs to slow down or stop, the kinetic energy is instantly and efficiently used to heat more of the surrounding air, by means of the braking system.

Bonecrusher is a character in the Transformers series. He can transform into a Buffalo mine-clearing vehicle that is used by the military.
How much gas it would take would depend on what kind of vehicle you are driving, the engine size of that vehicle, how much weight it is carrying, and the mechanical condition of it. I can do the drive using 110 Litres of gasoline in my economy car.

it already is an offroading vehicle.. it's a fricken samurai!!

It is the nozzle you insert into your fuel tank filler neck to pump gasoline into your vehicle.

Automobile, gasoline vehicle, or vehicle with an internal combustion engine.
As of 2011, there were 253,108,389 registered vehicle in the U.S. Although not broken down by gasoline and electric, most are gasoline powered.
