A water-in-hydrocarbon emulsion includes a water phase, a hydrocarbon phase and a surfactant, wherein the water phase is present in an amount greater than or equal to about 5% vol. with respect to volume of the emulsion, and the water phase and the surfactant are present at a ratio by volume of the water phase to the surfactant of at least about 1. A method for preparing the emulsion is also provided.
What is claimed: 1. A method for forming a stable water in liquid hydrocarbon microemulsion, comprising the steps of: providing a liquid hydrocarbon phase; providing a water phase; providing a surfactant package having an HLB of between about 6 and about 10 and having a lipophilic component having an HLB of between about 1 and about 8 and a hydrophilic component having an HLB of between about 10 and about 18, wherein said surfactant package further includes a functional group for improving performance of said stable microemulsion as a combustible fuel, ...
