What is the difference between Nitrous Oxide and Nitro or are they the same?

Many people confuse nitrous oxide with nitro methane, because the term ‘nitro’ is often used to abbreviate both but it was first used as an abbreviation for nitro methane. Nitro methane is a fuel used by top class Drag bikes/cars and is in no way similar or linked to nitrous oxide. In fact they couldn’t be more different, as nitro methane is a flammable fuel, while nitrous oxide is a non-flammable oxidiser.
