With Oil Nozzles, size does matter

Can I Change the Size or Type of My Oil Nozzle?

In general, the oil nozzle recommended by the heater manufacturer should be used.  This can usually be found on a tag on the heater.  The nozzle is rated by GPH (gallons per hour of fuel use), spray angle and spray pattern.  For example, a .60 80 B nozzle will deliver .6 GPH oil use with an 80 degree angle and solid spray.

You may experiment with a smaller GPH nozzle to achieve better fuel economy.  A 1.20 GPH nozzle may be replaced with a 1.10 GPH, etc.  You may also try using a “W” nozzle in place of a hollow (A) or solid (B) spray pattern.  Other changes, especially to the spray angle should be left to an experienced technician.
