Depending how the meter measures the LPG,will guide what you should be charging per unit.
i only want to charge them fairly for what they use, at the price i pay to have the tank filled - the tank also supplies my house, but there is no meter on the supply to my house, so i need to be able to calculate it properly.
So if the meter says they have used 100 m3 the calculation is 100 x 3.7 x 72.88p ???? thanks for your help
If it breaks, well it wasn't working right anyway.
For reasonably accurate billing as mentioned above you'll need to convert the litre figure into the m3 figure,google possibly your friend here.
Don't know if you bought that gas during one of the price spikes or not,if not that's an outrageous price which could be bettered by searching internet and calling some suppliers,unless your in a contract and you have to use the one supplier.
Anyway, is my way of calculating what to charge correct?So if the meter says they have used 100 m3 the calculation is 100 x 3.7 x 72.88p ????
