So our new home has brand new oil tanks (2) and a 2 year old Uticia CI boiler with a DHW arm and an indirect. All copper fin baseboard. When I was told what the previous owners paid last year total for oil, I decided to look into an LP unit since I can get a combi boiler very well priced and I am planning on relocating and consolidating all three LP tanks into one in the back corner of the yard anyway. Since I have never used or serviced an oil type boiler before, is there any reason to reconsider swapping to LP from oil? New combi will be 96% efficient and I am leaning towards all staple-up with AL plates for main floor and CIBB to replace the dated and beat up copper fin BB. I have to assume there's a market to sell the oil boiler and tanks? Keep as backup?
On a side note, I overheard a discussion where it was claimed that heating oil is just diesel but due to state regs diesel for cars cannot be put in oil tanks. Any truth to this?
