What is the heat of combustion for octane? I can't find it on google for some reason, and none of my textbooks list heats of combustion for alkanes above pentane. I need a citeable source, but I can't find anything.

Actually, what are the units on that value? Is it at 25 degrees C?

The value is for the liquid, at 20°C and atmospheric pressure.
