There are entire libraries filled with heavy books, theses, knowledgeable opinions, about the respective merits of grease and oil.
You can spend the upcoming winter making up your mind if you have the courage to investigate thoroughly this particular issue.
Take the plunge, make your own decision about what fits your particular circumstances.
