is there any substitute for kerosene/parafin oil

It depends on the application. Generally any hydrocarbon can burn. Edible oils, mineral oils alcohols, gasoline, diesel, tar, wood, charcoal, hay, etc. If it is suitable as a substitute depends on what you intend to do with it...

thanx, i was intending to use it in an old blow torch lamp
flame based tools can often use other fuels but this can generally be unsafe. Alcohol or gasoline might work but i would stick to the original fuel for safety
