The low- and high-temperature oxidation of two alkane-rich FACE gasolines (A and C Fuels for Advanced Combustion Engines) was studied in a jet-stirred reactor at 10 bar and equivalence ratios from 0.5:1 to 2:1. The experimental results revealed that the global reactivity and the distributions of major products and important intermediate species during oxidation of the two FACE gasolines were similar indicating that they have similar global reactivity despite their different compositions. The simulation results using all the surrogates captured the two-stage oxidation behavior of the two FACE gasolines but the extent of low temperature reactivity was overpredicted.
