    It may be a silly question - i Know petrol evaporates, but does home heating oil (kerosene) evaporate? - because I have no rubber seal on the flap where the oil goes into on the oil tank and im wondering if oil could evaporate through the flap - maybe one of the boiler experts can answer this one

    No it does not. Which is why leaks are such a concern environmentally.
