Question about 1992 Mazda MX-5
There is petrol in the cooling water and it over heated its a mazda eunos roadster
I'm assuming no-one deliberately added petrol to the cooling water. You'll probably find there's a heap of oil in there too. It sounds like you've got a cracked head or a dead head gasket. Pull the head off and check. You could also do a leak-down test or a compression test to try and tell where the problem is.
A note on the side - the car probably overheated BEFORE the oil/petrol leaked into the coolant. If you continued to try to run the car, the overheating would have got worse and worse - resulting in a crack or the gasket being destroyed.
If you're not mechanically minded, you've probably got a rather large problem on your hands and need to get someone else to look at it.
Sorry to give you bad news...
