Define difference between solution and mixture in case of miscible liquids.

For me there is no difference.

Solution is a homogeneous mixture of two or more substances, which may be solids, liquids, gases, or a combination of these.

@Ajelderks

The answer they want to hear is probably a (general) homogeneous mixture.

"Solution" rather means a homogeneous mixture that is made up mostly of one part, the solvent, and little amounts of other substances, the solutes.

Gasoline is made up of many different hydrocarbons. You don't have one distinct solvent, so you don't say solution.
