At what temperature does Petroleum burn?

Main Question or Discussion Point

At what temperature does Petroleum burn? Can you name any other common house hold oils which burn, and at what temperature? I'm also interested in the fuel you use to start a campfire with coal.

Keep in mind that almost any temperature, within material limits, can be reached with a furnace-type setup, so in a big enough fire, temperatures can be significantly higher.
