I'm looking to buy a house that has an old, oil fired furnace. Could I replace the oil tank with a propane tank, so I could put in a new gas furnace and water heater? That way I could also use the gas dryer and stove I already have. I thought that any gas appliance could be converted from natural gas to propane? Would this cost less than buying a new oil furnace, electric stove and electric dryer? I already have figured on replacing the furnace and water heater regardless. Any thoughts are appreciated.

Propane tanks, depending on size have requirements as to how close to a house they can be, unlike oil tanks which can be set right against a wall. Yes you can convert most appliances from NG to propane, it is usually very simple, if you are handy at DIY.
