The blowout limit of a methane jet diffusion flame is extended by adding small concentrations of a fuel to the surrounding air. The improvement is predicted theoretically with a model based on the stoichiometric changes within the jet and in its vicinity due to the presence of this additional fuel. Good agreement was obtained between such a prediction and the corresponding experimental values for a range of gaseous fuels in the surrounding air.
