I did use mostly grease for the mechanical inner parts of my Hardy click and pawl reels. Oil gets washed out very fast, no matter which sort of oil.
For need of oil in general and because of said reason I use only gun oil made of plants for water work. Stuff like Ballistol did work very well for me. Checked and maintained regularly, I didn’t see any difference to other sorts of oil, also to „high end“ oil. And I feel better somehow...

As a lighthearted site note:
If you want to hear full alarm of your click and pawl reel, I would take oil - if water sound, surrounding, silence, beauty of nature, head shakes and runs of the fish is enough for you, I would take grease...

Time is running... A little bit of work, a little bit married, fishing, hunting... What else?
