In a similar fashion, comparing the labeling information between a Pettit brushing thinner and a more economical West Marine branded thinner made it pretty clear the same liquid was in both cans.
I doubt it. But here's a trick I discovered while looking for a thinner for some other Interlux paint last summer: Go find on the interlux web site the thinner that they say you should use. Then go bring up the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for it. That will give you a good idea as to what is in their recommended thinner. As I recall, the brushing thinner for the paint I was using was mainly kerosene, while the spray thinner for it was mainly mineral spirits.
I was spraying, so I substituted mineral spirits and so far there's no sign of problems. I wasn't thinning all that much, and if I were, I'd maybe use the mineral spirits to extend the fancy thinner - but if nothing else, reference to the MSDS will let you know things that are not incompatible with the paint, because they're already in the approved thinner.
