problems with oil boiler.

I have a fairly new boiler (.Still under warranty until May 2021) .Just before Christmas I had a delivery of heating oil . went on holiday in January for a week and the boiler was working as normal,it was the same setting twice a day . When I returned from holiday the boiler was locked out and looks like it had been for some time. I reset it but over the next week it kept shutting off. I called the boiler engineer out and he said it was a bit black near the photo cell ,anyway he replaced what he thought was the problem but 3 weeks later the same thing happened again.This time the engineer said since it was under warranty it needs Worcester boilers to come and see what the problem was. The only thing different was that I had changed oil suppliers and this all occurred with a new supplier . I have never had any problem with any heating oil and I have had oilboilers for 25 years. Could the oil be at fault? I have found that this company are offering two types of heating oil on their website. When I rang them they didnt advise anything different about the oil. The problem is how do I sort this out ? Will it keep breaking down or do I have to get the tank drained? I have heard there is an additive that can clean the oil in a tank does anyone know what this is? Or have any experience of this?
