Some friendly advice: don't bet big on that one.

Ah, I can see it now. The dragon dives, the plane turns and fires, snarky greeting cards fly at the dragon embarrassing it to tears ... or maybe not. Can Arcanan dragons read?

There is mention of gasoline ices in the book, but is sounded like they were still too primitive to be useful.

Yup. Shaylar commented how her family, desert land holding have become much more valuable once other uses of oil have been discovered. That include gasoline engines.

Gasoline was initially discarded

Edwin Drake dug the first oil well in Pennsylvania in 1859 and distilled the oil to produce kerosene for lighting. Although other petroleum products, including gasoline, were also produced in the distillation process, Drake had no use for the gasoline and other products, so he discarded them. It wasn't until 1892, with the invention of the automobile, that gasoline was recognized as a valuable fuel. By 1920, 9 million vehicles powered by gasoline were on the road, and service stations selling gasoline were opening around the country. Today, gasoline is the fuel for nearly all light-duty vehicles in the United States.

They use kerosene to run the boilers in some of their transports for the invasion but there has been no mention of machines using gasoline.

Internal combustion engines are mentioned in book #1 but no talk of actual application in vehicles either rolling or flying.
