If you burn kerosene (K1 grade) in your boat's oil lamps, your eyes will water and your throat will sting. I know Lynn Pardey says that if you add an ounce of isopropyl alcohol to a quart of kerosene, this doesn't happen, but I have never tried it. I burn clear paraffin in my lamps and kerosene in my stove and heater. Very little odor.
Maybe adding some alcohol to you paraffin will lower the gel point?
