This is the type of issue that should be negotiated before renting a property. There is no statute that dictates who pays for oil; the responsibility is a negotiated one and if you failed to negotiate it in advance, you may not be able to compel the landlord to reimburse you now. If there was already oil in the tank when you moved into the property, then you might be expected to leave an equivalent amount in the tank when you leave. As you can see, the answer to your question is dependent upon the facts of your particular situation and cannot be determined in an online forum. A consultation with a local attorney would be your best option, so that you can discuss all factors that might affect your outcome.
