Can't read gas meter

posted by Tanya | 3 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.
