A fossil is part of an animal or plant that has been, over time, turned to stone.

A fossil fuel is, generally, a plant that has over time been turned into oil. Animals can become fossil fuel but almost all pil deposits date back to before animals were around on land.

Fossils are the remains of organisms, including plants and animals, that have been preserved over time. Fossil fuels, like coal, oil, and natural gas, are formed from the remains of living organisms over millions of years and are used as energy sources.

Fossil fuels are fuels that are fossilized living remains. Oil deposits are just as much fossils and a T-Rex skeleton, we just don’t find them as interesting for the purposes of learning about past creatures.
