I've used Phil's Tenacious Oil in freehubs for a long time now. I got
a gadget called a "Freehub Buddy" from Morningstar Tools in Calif. It
allows one to inject lubricant into a freehub. My climate is dry so I
do it maybe annually, while I'm re-greasing the hub bearings. It's
kinda messy as it drives the old oil out & wants to drip for a day or
two. The freehubs run quietly and last forever (so far). Check with
Morningstar to see if they have a version for your freehub.
