Abstract: In this study measurements of the density and viscosity of mixtures of biofuels and fossil fuels are discussed including their temperature dependence. The blends cover the fuels commercially available in Germany as well as in most parts of Europe.
Furthermore, to cover blends with larger percentage of biofuels which may become commercially available in future mixture series consisting of 0 % biofuel up to 100 % biofuel were prepared and measured. To gain a better understanding of the fundamental behaviour of the density and viscosity, additional measurements were carried out on pure alkanes and on the mixture series ethanol-hexane and ethanol-nonane.
The changes in density and viscosity were compared to the spread of data gained from a collection of samples demonstrating the regional variance of parameters of commercially available and nominal identical fuels in Germany.
