Here is my best explanation:

'very hot' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'fuel filling container? good' is the wordplay.
'fuel' becomes 'oil' (I've seen this before).
'filling' is an insertion indicator.
'container?' becomes 'bin' (bin is a kind of container**).
'good' becomes 'g' (abbreviation).
'oil' placed inside 'bin' is 'boilin'.
'boilin'+'g'='BOILING'
