I was talking about kerosene vs diesel, not kerosene vs gasoline. As far as I know diesel is even less volatile than kerosene. Though I'm not sure why  I think that.

That's exactly the problem: diesel has longer carbon chains and so it is less volatile and more viscous, so it 'clouds' earlier that kerosene as it cools.
