Posted:no its naptha.

It burns a hell of a lot hotter and has a much lower flashpoint (far more chance of gettign a big fireball when lighting).

You should also NEVER put smouldering wicks anywhere near it!

Lamp oil (often citronella cented) is mostly paraffin though.

Posted:Lighter fluid is a combination of napatha and pariffin. It burns hotter with a lower flashpoint but doesn't burn up as fast.

This is the reason that you can take a wick lighter and fill it with regular lighter fluid and it will light for about 2 weeks. Fill the same lighter with pure napatha and it will light for about a day and put a little more ware on your wick.
