Searching for Ronsonol lighter fluid, I see that it has been discontinued,
although some vendors still claim to have it in stock. I also see that its
formulation changed in 2010. Old Ronsonol was 100% naphtha -- same stuff
you can buy in a pint or quart can at your local paint store. New Ronsonol
is different, although maybe not much different. I don't like "maybe" when
I'm working on old tapes, so I just use naphtha.
The best info I found is in a forum for guitar techs, because it seems they
use it to clean guitars:
