How close?

In the state of Ma. how close can an oil fired boiler/furnance be from a homeowners electrical service panel?
How close can an oil tank be from the electrical panel?

I know that code is five feet from burner to oil tank.

Try asking in the Electrical forum. The code governing this is probably more related to the clearance requirements for the service panel. You can also call your city's building department and ask them for the information.

I don't know about MA but the federal code is 10 ft. You must follow the most stringent.
