Economics of an electrical vs. an heating oil radiator?

I need a small radiator to heat my conservatory. I assume a 2kW electrical heater will be quite expensive to run, but how much cheaper would an oil heater be? B&Q sell a suiitable looking electrical radiator for about £20-£30, while an oil heater is about £100. If you're familiar with UK fuel prices, does it make sense to go for the oil radiator?
