What's the easiest way to turn benzene into non-toxic fuel?


I'm interested in using benzene as fuel. However, it's carcenogenic with no 100% safe concentration. Therefore, I'm looking for the simplest way to turn benzene into a less toxic molecule without sacrificing energy density. Now, I did my research but it's difficult for me to find a welcome answer. Is there a truly easy way i'm overlooking?

(Note: I realize toluene is easily available, however I'm specifically interested in starting with benzene as I may have invented a method of fixing CO2 into benzene in three steps, would post it but maybe it's worth patenting)

The usual method is by diluting it with other fuels like heptane.



I'm no longer involved in this forum.

Probably to sell it, and buy a non-toxic fuel with the money you make.
