If your house needs less heat than the 125,000 btuh, then the gas burner can be one way to go, as you lose the radiant heat of an oil fire when you go to gas and the passages of the oil burner provides the heat exchange, not the chamber walls as well as in an oil burner.
Any oil burner is subject to sooting when it is not adjusted with combustion test instruments. The gas burner will have to be set up with combustion test instruments to get a good heat from it as well.
Be aware that the boiler is made for oil burning, so warrantees no longer apply to a conversion.
