Monte Carlo simulations of a Larson-type model for oil-water-amphiphile mixtures determine the characteristic micelle concentration CMC and the oil-water phase separation temperature $T_{\rm c}$. These data agree partially with experimental data on aqueous solutions of the non-ionic tensides CH 3 $\cdot$(CH 2) i-1- (O - CH 2 $\cdot$ CH 2 $\cdot$ O) jH.
