# Dial Meter

## Gas Mechanical Dial Meter: ## A dial meter has a number of dials including one or two that are red, like the one above.

### To read your meter, note the main numbers only from left to right.  • Ignore any red dials.

• Adjacent dials turn in opposite directions.

• The number and position of dials may vary.

• If the pointer is between two ﬁgures, always read the lowest of the 2 numbers (so if the pointer is between 5 and 6, the number you read is 5).

• If the pointer is directly on a number, for example 7, look at the next dial to the right. If that dial on the right is between 9 and 0, you read 6 for the initial dial. If the dial on the right is between 0 and 1, you read 7 for the initial dial.
