    Varsol is fairly close, but following the direction is usually the best way.

    mineral spirits is definitely flammable. hell you add toluene to gas for higher octane and they are similar, so if mineral spirits is ok, then i guess gas is too. or naptha. . . or whatever lighter fluid has in it. or ligher fluid.
