Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can

continue our conversation.

If this is an oil fired unit it may just be a gasket that's leaking. If not then it's somewhat likely the boiler itself has a leak. You'll need to call a local plumber to check this out. For now if the leak isn't causing any damage to the surrounding area you can run the boiler.
