@Jazz they are real Japanese words. These are more modern items, so most of them are based on English words. But there are certain sounds that are not present in the language. For example there is no L sounds really so L usually changes to R. That's why Gasoline becomes Gasorin. Some stuff like Tire to Taiya is the same sounding word just more emphasis on certain vowels.
