    I wasn't talking about oil. Oil and gas fired equipment are two distinct things.

    NFPA 31, Standard for the Installation of Oil-Burning Equipment, 2001 Edition
    10.5 Operating Controls.
    10.5.1*
    Oil burners, other than oil stoves with integral tanks, shall be provided with some means for manually stopping the flow of oil to the burner. Such device or devices shall be placed in a readily accessible location at a safe distance from the burner.
    10.5.1.1
    For electrically powered appliances, the requirement of 10.5.1 shall be accomplished by an identified switch in the burner supply circuit, placed near the entrance to the room where the appliance is located.
    10.5.1.2
    For appliances that are not electrically powered, an identifiable valve in the oil supply line, operable from a location that can be reached without passing near the burner, shall be used.
    10.5.2
    An electrical service disconnect switch, arranged to stop and start the oil burner, shall be installed at the appliance. It shall be located so that it is within easy reach of the service technician for control of the oil burner while observing the flame.

    I was referring to gas burners, your code section seems to reference oil burners.

    As was I. However the OP did ask or was confused about both gas and oil. As long as @RICK NAPIER brought up oil it was a good opportunity to talk about what that requires.
