Boiling Point - Fuels

Some common fuels and their boiling points

The boiling point of a substance is the temperature at which it can change state from a liquid to a gas throughout the bulk of the liquid.

The boiling point is defined as the temperature at which the saturated vapor pressure of a liquid is equal to the surrounding atmospheric pressure.

Some fuels and their boiling points at atmospheric pressure can be found in the table below.
