Only oil the drum. Just make sure the plastic tabs and everything that is with them is clean and free of debris. Oil and such can gum them up over time.

It depends. If its all plastic then no. If it has a metal or brass post  then yes. A tiny drop on every post and then shake the excess off. That will prevent corrosion on the post. But remember, I'm using very thin synthetic oil.

Thanks guys!! Matt, I've been putting 1 drop of oil on the drum and spreading it with a toothpick, it really does help.
