My father used to work for Exxon and has this explanation for Varsol.

        Varsol is a petroleum diluent, a solvent composed, I believe,
mainly of 
kerosene.  It's very close to paint thinner you might get in the
store.  I imagine it is made up mostly of middle distillates like
hexanes and some octanes with very light to some heavier components.  It
is not 
a pure, single component materials, rather broad in petroleum terms, not

refined like gasoline or jet fuel might be.
