Sorry I previously missed your question. If you have not already gotten an answer elsewhere; you don't have to change anything. Put fuel oil in the tank & operate as normal. The kero burns much cleaner but with the price difference, I can certainly understand why you want to go with fuel oil.

Fuel Oil

If you want you can add fuel oil to the kero. It will hurt nothing. Before kero got so much more expensive than fuel oil, it was common practice to add 10 -25% kero to fuel oil as an anti-gelling agent.
