Developing techniques to evaluate fuel stability and combustibility is essential to ensure the quality of marine fuel oil.<BR>Experimental research was performed to determine the combustion performance of marine fuel using the thermogravimetry-differential thermal Analysis (TG-DTA) and the fuel droplet combustion method and the fuel ignition Analyzer (FIA-100) .<BR>The results made it possible to distinguish between normal fuel and fuels which caused combustion problems.<BR>Compatibility of fuel oils follows solubility theory. The solubility of asphaltene can be predicted by the Scatchard-Hildebrand equation. This paper describes how to apply the solubility theory to evaluate fuel stability of marine fuel oil.
