I have seen small amts of "oil" with my trailer.
No real problems though. I always thought it was from the hoses.
This was reinforced when I saw that the Mr Buddy heaters sell a filter if using larger than 1# tanks, or a green hose that doesn't contaminate the regulator.
This seems to happen with high pressure hoses with the regulator at the appliance (heater, grill).

Hi, the oil that you are probably having problems with leeches from the rubber hose, with having the regulator mounted high these days rather than on the bottle the oil travels down from the regulator to the bottle connection and here in u.k. a lot of us are moving over to flexible metalized flexible hose 'pigtails' which removes the problem and a lot of us do not use the bbq gas point on the van anymore

I worked on propane powered fork lifts for over 20 years and have run across this problem more than a few times. There are a couple of brands of LP regulator/vaporizers who also have an in-line filter (about 4 inches in diameter and 3 inches wide) that collect the "oil" and inpurities before the regulator. The filter elements are easily replaced and cheap if you do it yourself.
I have never seen this filter used except on engines but the reason may be because they are run sometimes 20 hours a day and use more LP in one day than you likely use in months.
Ask a local lift truck parts tech. about this filter...it may be what you are looking for...
