Nacl is a salt, so it's polar and then some, in that each pole has more than a partial charge. Gasoline is a hydrocarbon, so obviously non polar. Ethanol is polar, something you can check by working out it's empiracle formula's shape (C2H6O). Polar substances can be disolved in polar solvents, and non polar so with non polar.
