It depends on how cold your ice is. A salty mixture will lower the melting point of water to a certain extend, just like when cities put salt on the roads in winter to remove ice, your vinegar will do something alike. However, if your ice is too cold it won't do anything, it will actually freeze itself.

What makes ice in vinegar melt faster than ice in water?

According to my experiments, ice melts faster in water than in vinegar. It takes roughly twice as long to melt in vinegar than water when both the vinegar and water are at room temperature. I think the reason is vinegar is slightly more dense than water and what happens is as the ice melts in vinegar it forms a cool layer of water in the surface. The ice floats so it's in contact with the cool layer. When ice is in water, as the ice melts, the melted water is cooler an denser and drops to the bottom, so the ice floating in water is always in contact with a warmer layer of water.

Will vinegar melt an ice cube faster or vegetable oil?

Assuming that the vinegar and oil are at the same temperature to begin with. And that the two cases of ice are of the same volume and temperature in each case. The vinegar will melt the ice fater as there is a net gain (negetive increase) of energy when the two are mixed. (mixing in this case is still valid even though the ice is solid. There is contact at the surface level) As oil and water are mutually insoluable there is no reaction and no heat released.
