    New off grid boiler required Oil vs LPG??? 10th Feb 18 at 7:29 PM
    My current Potterton Statesman flowsure oil boiler has gone bang apparently needs a new solenoid and electrode and apparently a part is obsolete so rendering it !!!!!!ed????
    So do I go for a new Oil boiler circa 2000+ or change to LPG where the boilers are much cheaper but understand LPG is slightly dearer . Currently using about 2000 lts per year on oil
    Any comments/suggestions welcome

    I would check first to make sure the parts are really unavailable - heating companies like selling new boilers. Beyond that, if I had to get a new one, I'd stay with oil on the grounds that it's a more competitive market with greater choices when buying.
