Actually, Mel Gibson comments on this more than once in the film's commentary. He says that what they used wasn't meant to be oil. He says that he did not know of a flammable substance that was used during the time period but that one must have been present. (As many things required somekind of fuel) So he simply made use of this "unknown substance" with the black liquid seen in the film.
