Gas meter readings

Very confusing since my meter dated1991 has 3 different cu ft units printed on the face of the meter 
The meter is also a type U6 
In multiplying one of the units shown on the meter face (212cu.ft/ hour ) x 0.0283 one gets 6 (rounded up) as in 6 cu.metres/ hour  which confirms conveniently the U6 meter type ? 
Surprised that this issue has not been clarified by now from other forum users but I am a newcomer for now. Just pleased oddly enough that my new gas supplier agrees that the conversion factor using my meter is 0.0283 ???? Thanks everyone who responded. I will wait for the Ombudsman’s verdict and then get on with my life !

    Yes, 212 cu.ft / hour or 6 cubic metres / hour is the maximum flow rate that the meter can support, but it's completely irrelevant to how you read the meter and how to convert the imperial value to metric.
    A car's speedometer might certified for a maximum speed of 200mph but the figure is unrelated to the conversion that would be used to get the kph equivalent.
