Everyone I have seen in videos and myself use silicone grease. There may be more options, but consider that as an airgun gets hot the lube will creep. I find it coming out of the atmospheric relief hole in my reservoir tube. It makes a small wet appearing ring on my reservoir tube. I'm assuming that is not the only place it migrates to. Petroleum based lube will explode when put under enough pressure and with enough air present. Much like a diesel motor. Sometimes called dieseling. I stick with silicone, and don't get crazy with it to reduce the hot lube going where it's not needed. I'd love to hear other good options from a pro (not me).
