An Unbelievable Gas Bill

 I'm not sure what a naughty hacker could do with my gas meter number, but I'm taking no chances....

I got this thing through from the Gas Company asking me to read my meter. They keep sending meter readers round during working hours and finding that I'm not at home.

Who'd have thought?  It's almost as if I had a job that kept me out of the house during the week.

 


Anyhoo, I went into the garage and took a snap of the device.  I then copied the numbers into the web page and was promptly told that my numbers were unbelievable. There are two possible ways to interpret this:

  • Our gas use has been so high that I've "wrapped round" the meter.
  • Our gas use has been lower than expected because last year I bought a Nest heating controller. 

I really hope it is the latter.
