Can't read gas meter

posted by Tanya | 6 months ago

Hello! This is my gas meter and I can't understand which numbers to write when I provide my meter readings. I've got five digits, but when I ener my meter readings, I can write only four. Should I add the 0 too? Today, when I provided my readings I added only 0589 and I don't know is it right or not. Thank you!20180404_113343.jpg

Nice picture and Yes you should include the first zero when you submit on line so 05983 is what you put in.

You should enter all the black digits and ignore the red ones.  Based on this you would enter 05893.

However, you have said you can only enter 4 digits.  This means you'll need to enter 5893 instead.  You should contact Scottish Power and inform them that your meter has 5 digits so they can update the system.  You've got a fair amount of time before the most significant digit on the left becomes a 1 though.

my gas meter screen is dark and is not showing any digits therefor cannot be read. Scottish Power Custumer Services were informed of this last week

All smart gas meters need to be woken up by pressing buttons. Your gas readings are also shown on your IHD without you needing to read the actual meter.

thanks for the info; it would have been helpful if the British Gas installers informed me of this when the meter was changed.
