    Default Problem in sentence framing

    Hi, kindly let me know if this phrase would be correct or not:

    "Knowledge a fuel for innovation."

    If this is wrong, then please tell me the correct way to put it.

    In place of knowledge, put (A)cknowledge.

    As we are talking about fuel in general and figuratively, it's better without the article. It can be used with an article, coal is a fuel, oil is a fuel, for example.
