Petrol will catch fire instantly because of ignition temperature .Petrol have low ignition temperature so it will not take time to catch fire but mustard oil and milk have high temperature so it will take time to catch fire

 if the ignition temperature is low then it burns quickly but if the temperature is high then it takes time to burn
