Paraffin and Kerosine are the same, AFAIK, it's also jet fuel, sort of...
The first jet fuels were based on kerosene or a gasoline-kerosene mix, and most jet fuels are still kerosene-based. Both British and American standards for jet fuels were first established at the end of World War II. British standards derived from standards for kerosine use for lamps—known as paraffin in the UK—whereas American standards derived from aviation gasoline practices. Over the subsequent years, details of specifications were adjusted, such as minimum freezing point, to balance performance requirements and availability of fuels.
Also heating oil:
Kerosene is also known as boiler juice, burning oil, 28 second heating oil, industrial paraffin, C2 kero and standard kero.

Kerosene is used for domestic heating and industrial processes requiring low sulphur fuel.
Its clean burning characteristics maintain a high heat output and maximum economy. For many years, it has been the most economical fuel for central heating.
With over 60 years of experience, Crown Oil has become an expert in managing and delivering heating oil to its customers.
Useful information about kerosene heating oil:
Kerosene is a liquid mixture of chemicals produced from the distillation of crude oil in a similar process used to produce diesel or petrol.
In the UK, kerosene is also known as paraffin and home heating oil.
Kerosene is widely used to power jet-engined aircrafts, but is also used as heating oil in home central heating systems and can be used as a cleaning agent or solvent.
Kerosene is typically stored in a blue, or blue labelled container.
Kerosene, also known as boiler juice, is the most common home heating oil fuel used in the UK.
Up until electricity was invented, kerosene was used in home lanterns as the main source of lighting.
