The paper examines the structural features and properties of fuel blends and fuel emulsions, presents an overview of formulas obtained getting stable emulsions and analyses the results of experimental studies on preparing mixtures made of different quantities of diesel and various additives considering certain parameters. The article discusses the dependence of the size of resulting particles of water in the emulsion and describes an impact of various additives on the size of particles and time for blend delamination.
