Properties of Diesel Fuel
Hello Rudi:

Your question is quite specific !  We have consulted reference books for the information that you seek.

For numerical information at particular temperatures, look at:

www.lubrizol.com/referencelibrary/readyreference/8-Fuels

Mark? Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers (10th Ed.) page 7-14

ASTM D975

Some ballpark figures for your parameters are as follows:

density: 840 (kg/m^3) at 15C          
kinematic viscosity: 3 (mm^2/s) at 40C      
surface tension: Consult manufacturer.
vapor pressure: Consult manufacturer.

You will need to consult manufacturers for the functions of temperature.

Sincerely,

The Staff of eFunda
