oil-to-gas conversion?

Hi everyone,
I recently bought a (about 1,500 sq ft) rental property in central NJ.
The existing heating is forced air with an oil furnace.

I noticed a seepage of oil from the bottom of the side of the tank which is almost empty. It is not leaking - it ony seeps a few drops when I run a cloth over it.

Well, I'm thinking of converting to a gas - there is a gas line nearby - looks like it was capped off and it was originally a gas furnace. The alternative would be replacing the oil tank.

I know you can get conversion kits, but I'm thinking of getting a high efficiency gas furnace installed. Any opinions on furnaces?

You are best to retire the furnace, and put a new one in, than converting it over, and not saving in energy cost in the long run.
