: Which one of the following sentence is correct?

: Passion is the fire that fuels success

: or

: Passion is the fuel that fires success

: or

: Passion is the fuel that propels success

Fires can't fuel anything - they consume fuel. Thus your number 2 makes most sense. Number 3 is possible, but 2 is better in my opinion.
