How do I read my own meter?

  • If you have a multi-dial gas meter, the dials alternate between a clockwise and counter-clockwise direction. Read dials from left to right.
  • If a hand is between two numbers, always select the lower number EXCEPT when the hand is between "0" and "9". In this case, because the "0" is considered to be a "10", read the number "9".
  • When the hand looks like it is exactly on a number, look at the dial to the right. If the hand on the dial to the right has passed "0" then read the number that the hand is on. If the hand has not passed the "0" then read the lower number.

Here is a sample meter reading of 6084:
