My guess is that not all manufacturers are using the same stuff, but one manufacturer told me that Dow UCON LB-625 was being used by some. Viscosities and all kinds of other info on this oil are (or at least were when I went there) on the Dow web site, WWW.DOW.COM.

Yup.. The UCON LB series of polyethylene glycols are the base "oil" used for a lot of synthetics used in model airplane glow fuels. LB-625 is popular among competitors, and it has a viscosity more or less like 30 weight motor oil.
