Here is a list of adiabatic (no heat losses) flame temperatures for equivalence ratio 1 (meaning oxygen and fuel are present in stoichiometric ratios and all oxygen and all fuel is burned, this gives the highest flame temperature)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adiabatic_flame_temperature

The adiabatic flame temperatures can be computed using the formation enthalpies of the species involved in the chemical reaction.
