Figured it out. It was actually really simple (after finding the brains video).
Create a brain called oiler
Add an input of "X axis Feedrate" and hit + and tell it greater than 0
Add an input of "Y axis Feedrate" and hit + and tell it greater than 0
Select both "greater than zero blocks" (turn them green)
Hit the + key and pick the OR function
Then select the OR box (turn it green) and terminate with an output 5 (which is the one I happen to have the relay that turns on the oiler hooked to AKA port 2 pin 4 in my ports and pins)

That is it, now anytime the X or Y axis moves no matter how it is doing it (program or jog buttons) the oiler comes on.
Every 15 minutes of actualy X or Y movement it will squirt 2.5 CC of oil out to the ways.

You could also use the "ismoving" input and turn it on anytime any axis moves. My Z axis gets no oil anyway so I went the other route.
