Paint that's based on oil, usually used for exterior painting since it lasts longer than latex-based paint. To clean a brush with oil-based paint on it use paint thinner.

Gasoline is cheaper but you can pour some paint thinner in a coffee can, wash the brush, and throw the dirty paint thinner in a bucket. Eventually the paint will settle to the bottom and you can reuse the paint thinner at the top.
