Material closest to diesel
I am working on the fuel atomization and am looking in Fluent's database a material which is closest to the diesel fuel used in engines. Cetane doesn't exist in the list. Two materials named fuel-oil-liquid (C19H30 Liq) and gasoil-liquid (C16h29 Liq>) are present. The questions arised in mind are:

What are applications where they are generally used? How far they are close to diesel in terms of properties?
