Do not confuse autoignition with sustained flame temperature, which can vary widely due to a number of contributors. Flame temperature of openly-burned diesel at sea level in an environment of 70°F at 80% humidity can range from 900°C to 1200°C, due to factors such as completion of burn, particle size, etc. A good 'general answer' would be 1200°C, but the technically correct answer is a range, not a specific number.
