If an 800 square foot area has a heat load of 60,000 btuh, move out to someplace that doesn't have a heat loss 3 times today's insulation standard, or insulate it to today's standard. There isn't much sense in paying an extra $1000 per year in fuel.
Doing so would make it able to be heated by another Monitor, Toyostove, Bock water heater, or other efficient boiler. Most oil heaters are about 85% efficient this year; 2 percent in fuel won't break you; but keeping you building as poorly insulated as it is could.
