    To save damaging any parts

    Contact a heating contractor and have a tech sent over to purge the lines and give the system a look over. If you ran out before you expected it may indicate the system needs repairs it can also mean you have a leak.
    Cost is what you spend , value is what you get.

    burner bleeding

    You will need
    1) a rag 
    2)3/8'' wrench 
    3)something to bleed the fuel into (baking pan)
    Place the baking pan under the fuel pump (likely on the left side looking at the burner, the little wee black box that the fuel line enters) locate the bleed nipple (looks the same on a tracker or kind'a like on your cars brakes, probally pointing at the floor) Turn the bledder a 1/4 turn loose, then hit the burner reset button(red button on top of burner relay likey on the right side of the burner) The burner should start up and run for approx 30 seconds, then it will lock out. Continue to bleed the fuel out intill you get a steady stream of clear fuel. Next  tighten the bleeder and you should be good to go.
    If this boiler has a reillo burner or the newer looking beckett relay, feel free to email me for a slightly different instructions,
    You should have your boiler clean out once a year by your local service man, oil fitlers and nozzles dont take too long these days to plugg. 
    good luck boss
