The reason I asked is the gardener who chopped the tree down for me says he will come back with a ‘spray’ to kill the large stump.
That remains to be seen.  In the meantime, my back up plan was to see if I can buy a product to pour on it if the gardener doesn’t follow through.

When I checked online, one recommendation was to drill holes in the stump, fill with rock salt, seal with candle wax, cover with a tarp and wait six months.
I was looking for something less labor intensive, like just pouring something on it.  

The gasoline suggestion could work, so I appreciate that.  Seems like I now remember from childhood my dad using old motor oil on tree stumps.  I had forgotten about that.
