Its not entirely necessary to lube the o-ring or the threads. to be safe i'd oil the o-ring every once in a while with a drop or two of PB gun oil.

Which tank manufacture did you get? It's a good idea, but not necessary at all. Do not use vaseline in a paintball marker. It's just a bad idea. Not a good lubricant at all. Paintball oil, DOW33, and DOW55 would be the only things I'd consider putting in a marker as a lube, and each in their proper application.
