How to Read a Gas Meter

Reading a Gas Meter:

Every handyman should be able to read a gas meter, to be able to find the consumption of a single appliance, or for checking week-by-week usage. Quarterly-payment meters are fitted with a series of dials; the exact number of dials may vary from three to five. The image below shows a four-dial window.

However many the dials, each is marked with its value; in the illustration below, the dials shown — reading from left to right — indicate 10,000, 1,000, 100 and 10 cubic feet. Consumption is indicated by the position of the needle on each dial and an example reading is shown. The total of the last reading taken should be deducted from the new total to determine the consumption between last and present readings.
