    Average gas consumption 25th May 06 at 6:52 PM
    I have just received my latest gas bill and doubt I have used as much gas as it states.

    The etsimate for the meter is very accurate, so I am paying for what the meter reads, but is it correct?

    There are two of us in the house, we have one combi boiler and one gas fire. The gas fire is hardly ever used.

    During the winter months the boiler is on for seven hours per day.

    My gas bill says I am using approximately 3000 kWh per month which equates to approximately 70. This seems to be very high.

    British Gas say that I can have my meter tested for accuracy, but I will have to pay for the test if no fault is found. I therefore need some more information before I decide whether to have the meter tested.

    1. Does anybody know of a web site that can give me average gas usage so I have an idea if this is correct?

    2. I would be very interested to know what other peoples average consumption is. Are you using a similar amount of gas under simialr circumstances?
