Three ether molecules were included along with a 60'40 blend of dimethylfuran and 2-methylfuran. The parameters for the furanic mixture were obtained using the rule of mixture approach which is considered applicable by Hansen [16].

Recently, furan and its derivatives, such as 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF) and 2-methylfuran (MF), have been produced from non-food biomass using a catalytic strategy [1], which reduces the threat to food supply or biodiversity [2].
The feasibility of the application of 2-methylfuran (MF) and 2, 5-dimethylfuran (DMF) on internal combustion engine was studied [3, 4, 5] and conclude that the aldehydes emission and combustion characteristic are better than that of gasoline.
