> ... Naptha ~= gasoline.
Not really; naptha is much lighter fraction and mostly straight-chained
hydrocarbon, not aromatic. Is used as additive in gasoline (and many
other uses as well, of course)...
No, it and gasoline are refined petroleum products, but "~=" comes in
fairly distant in this case.
It is primarily aliphatic light hydrocarbons w/ C number betweeen C5 to
C9 and is treated to remove aromatics and has almost no benzene (<0.01%).
Gasoline, otoh, contains 20-30% ethyl benzene and significant fractions
up to C12.
IOW, "white gas" is far more refined and much lighter than gasoline.
They both burn, it's true... :)
Yes, and none should be confused w/ automotive gasoline as is much
lighter fraction (essentially more refined).
Gasoline isn't particularly well suited for finish work at all--it can
be used in a desperate pinch or for cleanup but even there it doesn't
evaporate as cleanly so still should be rinsed to avoid leaving "gummy"
