Oil consumption for Rayburn cookers

Hello.

I wonder if anyone can offer me any advice. We've always had a Rayburn and want to install one in our new place. We'll have to use oil as we have no access to free/cheap wood.

Does anybody have ideas as to the running costs for a cooker only model? It would only be on from [approx] late September to early May - the rest of the year a small LPG cooker and the great outdoors will suffice.

We can't decide whether to go for a refurbished older model or buy a brand new one.

We also looked at the Eco Range cooker http://www.ecorangecooker.co.uk/

Has anybody got one of these? They sound rather like the new 'Rapid Response' Rayburns and their running costs seem very competitive.

Grateful for any advice/ideas

Thanks in anticipation.

Is the oil free/cheap? Even fair priced wood might be cheaper than oil.

An ordinary Oil Rayburn for cooking and hot water is not expensive to run,but if you are talking central heating,that`s when you burn big buck`s.
I have had an old oil converted solid fuel rayburn here at the farm for nearly 28yrs,it was here when i moved in,even when i was getting 8 ton of concessionary coal when i was still working underground,i found it cheap enough to run without converting it back to coal.

Reading the info on them Aga`s was like when i was researching about woodburners,i learned not to believe all i read,but at nearly 9 grand it must all be true,lol.
