Their high octane numbers, relatively high energy Methylfuran density, low water solubility, and minimal eﬀect on gasoline blend volatility are potentially signiﬁcant ad- Dimethylfuran vantages over alcohol-based fuels. However, prior studies have reported poor oxidative stability for furanic Gasoline compound-gasoline blends, as well as the potential for the formation of dangerous organic peroxides. We show Oxidation stability that alkylated furans have very low oxidative stability compared to conventional gasoline. Upon oxidation they form highly polar ring-opening products that can react
