We have an oil fired boiler, Worcester Greenstar Camray External 18/25.

Can it be converted to run on gas? TIA.

Never known it to happen, but it probably could in theory.

Not sure it'd be worth the costs. Not a common conversion that I know of.

IIRC those boilers were about £2k+ brand new, you could probably sell it and buy a new gas boiler with the proceedings!

Its probably is possible, but I wouldn't think it'd be worth the cost or hassle.

You could certainly buy a Riello blown gas burner for it, but the flame pattern is designed to fit the heat exchanger and as a rule oil-boilers have a box surrounded by water whilst a gas boiler has a heat exchanger with flueways. Efficiency would suffer quite badly I reckon.
