That's scary. You do know that the oil will just end up eventually running off of everything you put it on and then eventually you will lose any and all protection. There's a reason why grease is used in combination with oil in reels.

Oil on bearings, grease on everything else.

I have a couple of reels that screech when I cast them. I've cleaned and oiled the bearings but both reels still have a screeching sound. One is a Revo and one is a Lews reel. Is there something I'm missing that needs to be oiled or greased?

I always use the oil that comes with the reel. Never had an issue.

I use Vaseline petroleum jelly instead of grease.

Interesting! I've never heard of that. I would imagine this would work if you're mostly in fresh water, and aren't too hard on your reels.

On all my reels, I use the Yamaha marine grease for gears, Cal's for the drags, and Interflon spray lube for everything else. I've replaced most of the bearings in my reels with Boca/ceramic sealed bearings. I feel like the Interflon spray does a good job of penetrating the bearings. It also dries and doesn't leave a sticky film. Downside is that it's expensive, but I only buy once a year or so.

GP/Marine Grease: Anywhere things move against other things. Gears (as has been mentioned). Also I use grease as a top coat over a lot of other stuff, to serve as a general protective layer. I've never tested this to know if it's necessary or not.
Drag Grease: Carbon and SS washers in the drag. This also works as a general grease, but it's super expensive (like, 10x the price of the yamaha marine grease).
Interflon/Oil: Pawls, bearings.
