I usually figure-four, but IMO it's all up to you. I've tried doing it gable-grip style and I found that I expend a lot more energy (and since I have weak arms I don't want to gas them out). Even if you start figure-fouring there'll still be discussions on "what to do with you left hand?!" (if you're right-handed like me); press on his forehead, pull his wrist, push his arm...
In the end it all comes down to how effective the choke is. If you can choke someone out in 8 seconds with one and 30 seconds with the other... just try every single way and see which one works best.
