How to read your dial gas meter

To read a dial meter look at the position of the pointers on the dials and follow these instructions:

  • Read the dials from left to right.
  • Ignore the large dial and the red dials.
  • When the pointer is between two numbers, always write down the lower number. This is not necessarily the nearest number to the pointer.
  • If the number is between 9 and 0, use 9.

The number on this example is 9476
