Kerosene, also known as paraffin, is a flammable hydrocarbon made from petroleum. Liquid kerosene is pale yellow in colour. However, depending on the presence or absence of other components or contaminants, it can appear as a colourless liquid. Kerosene liquid has a distinct, pungent odour. As a result, we can quickly detect the presence of kerosene based on its odour.
