If the burner can not achieve an 80% combustion efficiency, as most burners could do in the last 50 years, then change the burner. A combustion efficiency test can tell; if the repairman doesn't have the combustion analyzer, don't bother until you find someone who can.
Otherwise, it is probably the old boiler or a steam system that wastes your fuel. Any new boiler you get will be at least 82% efficient.
BTW, most people would LOVE to use just a ton of oil in a year, as that is about 250 gallons and most use four times that a year. (Just a technical kidding, I know what you mean.)
