Default How do I calculate my gas bill?

I'm trying to calculate how much I owe BG, can anyone
help me figure out how to calculate 1,479 units of gas
(from last meter reading to today’s meter reading)

I'm on the DD monthly tariff. Many thanks.

Link to the current rates.

Your last bill should show you how to convert the meter reading to kwh then use figures on the house site

roughly I think it's 46292 kwh

so 1143 x 2.298p
and 45149 x 1.525p

= £26.27 + £688.52 = £714.79

Super Woby.

I assume the calculation doesn't include VAT @ 5%?

I think it does, the figures on the house.co.uk site showed prices including VAT

For anyone interested


ENERGY "kWh" = (VOLUME "cubic metres" * CALORIFIC VALUE) / 3.6

Don't take that as gospel, phone up and press the options to speak to a CSA. Ask them to input the reading and produce as bill. If they say no just mention energywatch and giggle as you take control of the situation

Mmmmm I tested the formula on the current bill and it worked, obviously its slightly more complicated as we have two rates. And simply applied the new reading to the calculations to work the price from a staggering £75.00 down to £27.97

I would just phone the gas board, tell them your reading, and get them to calculate it for you-saves the headache!
