Oil furnace smell

I have an oil burner lennox furnace that is heating fine, but seems to be emitting an oil smell. I have had the furnace for about 10 yrs and have never smelled fuel oil before. It has a Beckett burner. Any ideas what this is from and why it started all of a sudden? We just had the tank filled. Anything I could/should check before I call for service?

Oil furnace smell

Probably a bad nozzle, or the flue passages are restricting.
