Olive oil.. basically all oils have fats/. Some are rich in fats that raise the levels of LDL or low density lipid particles and some are rich in fats that raise the HDL or high density lipid particles.

This question will not guide you as to the best oil from health point of view and so I have detailed it here somewhat: Info gathered from the Net:
As long as you're using fats and oils sparingly in your cooking and preparation, it would be fine to use any one of the following "good" oils. All of the following oils are low in saturated fats and trans fats. Some have high concentration of monounsaturated fats such as olive oil. Choose corn oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, soy oil or canola oil if you wish to fry foods as these oils have higher smoke point. It is best not to fry with olive oil as its smoke point is only about 190C/375F.

Good Cooking Oils:

canola oil
flax seed oil
peanut oil
olive oil
non-hydrogenated soft margarine
safflower oil
sunflower oil
corn oil
The following "bad" oils contain high percentage of trans fat or saturated fats. Some, such as coconut oil, even contain more saturated fats than animal products!

Bad Co ...more

This is a rather silly question. All cooking oil, unless adulterated, should be 100% fat.
