How to save heating oil tankless?

We just bought and moved into a house with oil heat. This is a first for us. Now the water is heated tank less. The house is about 20 years old in MA. What options do we have to save oil while heating water. It seems that I can watch the gauge going down. I just had the oil filled up 3 weeks ago and a visible amount is gone. We have not turned the heat on yet, are extremely conservative regarding our water and energy use (like we shower in the gym, wash cold, don’t take baths etc). Does it make sense to install an extra water heater, and how would we heat it, oil or electricity, how much would such a boiler cost? The potential oil costs scare me very much.
Thanks

if it was me i would install an Electric Hot Water Heater…that way you would not have to buy oil year round to heat water…I would not buy a heat pump to heat my home as it will not do a good job in your cold winters…the amount of oil burnt for heating water is determined by how long you run the water ….most oil fired units will tell you what size nozzle it has..such as a 1.00 at 80 degree A…what this means it will burn one gallon of oil for every hour it runs….the nozzle patter is sprayed out at 80 degrees from the nose of the nozzle and the A is whether it is a solid flame or holow core flame…as expensive as oil is it would be cheaper to use electric to heat all the water for your home laundry and kitchen, bathroom water…if i went to an electric hot water heater i would also buy the insulation blanket that goes around the heater…
