I had a similar problem last year in Spain. Amel told me that the grease is not actually from the furler but from inside the foil which needs to be removed approx every twenty thousand miles and regreased.
I have probably sailed a further ten thousand miles South, where it has been much warmer and have had no further problems and still have not replaced the grease.
I hope this is of some help.
