How to read a gas smart meter that has a black circle and arrows

About your smart meter reading

Normally, a smart meter sends us your readings automatically. So please only give us a reading if we've asked you to do this.

If we've asked you for a reading, please take it from the meter itself – not your in-home display. Your meter is usually on a wall or board; your in-home display either plugs into a socket or runs on batteries.

It looks like you have a have a Elster BK-G40E meter. Follow these simple steps to read this type of smart gas meter:

  1. Press the middle circle button to get to 'Current meter reading'
  2. Write down the numbers you see (they'll be in front of 'M3') – this is your reading
Tips to read your meter

When you're reading your gas meter, ignore any zeros at the front of the number – and ignore any numbers after the decimal point (the dot).
