Hiya,

Just received my estimated gas bill from british gas, just moved into the property a couple of months ago and they put the metre to 00000, got the bill and was surprised to see it said estimation 00117, the actual reading is 00021, far different from what they thought, the bill was for 48.52, anyone know what it will be now please.......maths is not my strong point at all, it is 6.25 per kw first 228.00 then 2.580 many thanks

RIng them and give your correct reading, they will then be able to tell you the new amount and will send you a new bill

Hiya, if your first 228kwh are 6.25p each and you've only used 21 units I come up with £13.125p but do make sure to ring them

I'm not very good at succinct. Why say something in 10 words when 100 will do?

Don't give up the day job! The 21 units need to be converted into kWh first - new bill £15.26.

Luckily my day job doesn't involve converting units into kwh :P

Actually I've always assumed that a kwh was the same as a unit but that's only cos I've never been told differently. So what's the conversion rate from kwh to units?

Edit: are there 1.16 units to each kwh?

That depends if you have an imperial or a metric meter (cu Ft or cu M). Approx x32 for an imperial and approx x11 for a metric.
