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.
Wow... your mancard has just been upgraded.Here you go: flashpoints and autoignition temperatures http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_point as well as flame temperatures http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adiabatic_flame_temperature All oils burn, as the second link shows most will burn around 1950°C hot.
