new firepit commission.

I am trying to find out the best rustproofing idea for a firepit commission I have just finished. It is 3/16 mild steel and will be placed a few blocks from the sea in San Francisco so it will rust. There is already a nice patina on it which I am keen to keep. Any suggestions for rustproofing without just painting it. What oils can I use that will be ok with the fire and not smell too much.
Some people are telling me to leave it as is as there is no real fireproofing. I am happy to do that as I am happy with the way it came out but want to prevent rusting if possible.
Many thanks for any help.
I tried to post more than one pic in here but I seem to have problems posting on this site. Pics with a fire to follow.
