    Does any genius here knows any suitable and cheap chemical to dilute Light Paraffin/White Mineral Oil to become lower density & thinner without affecting PH level? Probably a ratio of 10%(Light Paraffin/White/Mineral Oil) + 90%( X chemical)? Thanks!

    Any liquid hydrocarbon of lower molar mass will be less thick and will not change pH. That's assuming these liquids have any pH, this concept is more tricky than it may look at the first sight.
