With as important as gasoline is to our society how does Chakotay not know what gasoline is? Has he never read a history book?
A lot of people today would have no idea what coal was used for.

Making stuff black?
Exactly.
People in modern times don't know what an 8 track tape is, why would folks in the 24th Century know a fuel source that hadn't been used even before Kirk's time?

I guess I am just biased since I have two degrees in History... Chakotay is suppose to be into history and traditions though. If Paris knows how to start a 1936 Ford pickup truck you would think Chakotay would at least know that gas was an ancient fuel of some sorts!
