.oak with an extremely high alcohol content, it would be about 185 proof, which is strong enough to fuel an internal combustion engine- Incorrect- Very long and it would be about 185 proof look redundant
b.oak with an alcohol content that would be about 185 proof, it is strong enough to fuel an internal combustion engine- not sure it referring to 185 proof or whiskey- Incorrect
c.oak, it has an alcohol content of about 185 proof, which is strong enough to fuel an internal combustion engine- Precise and which refer to 185 proof look more logical
d.oak, if it were used to fuel an internal combustion engine, it would have an alcohol content of about 185 proof- it refer to oak or whiskey-- so incorrect
e.oak, it has an alcohol content of about 185 proof, which would be as strong as that of an internal combustion engine- very long sentence-- incorrect

a.oak with an extremely high alcohol content, it would be about 185 proof, which is strong enough to fuel an internal combustion engine NO NEED TO GIVE DESCRIPTION IN TWO SENTENCES(...extremely high alcohol content, it would be about 185 proof)
b.oak with an alcohol content that would be about 185 proof, it is strong enough to fuel an internal combustion engine
THE MEANING SAYS THAT 185 PROOF IS EXTREMELY HIGH(so just mentioning 185 proof alters /has incomplete meaning.
c.oak, it has an alcohol content of about 185 proof, which is strong enough to fuel an internal combustion engine
PERFECT.
d.oak, if it were used to fuel an internal combustion engine, it would have an alcohol content of about 185 proof
CONDITIONAL STATEMENT IS NOT REQUIRED (..if..)
e.oak, it has an alcohol content of about 185 proof, which would be as strong as that of an internal combustion engine
THE MOST TEMPTING AFTER (C) but as strong as..contrast is un-necessary.

Get a gist of the meaning , while applying the grammatical rules :)

+1 for (C)
