For any deep frying, I use plain old Crisco vegetable oil.
For pan frying I use a combination of dark olive oil and butter.
For salads, plain light olive oil.
For stir fries, a very light canola oil or sesame oil.

deep frying isn't as evil as some are making it sound. If you use plenty of oil and are set at the right temp the outcome shouldn't be greasy at all.
Exactly, proper oil and proper temp and it isn't greasy. If you're using one of those $10 home deep fryers you've lost before you started. Get a good, undustrial deep fryer if you do even a moderate amount of deep frying.
