    Brillo,

    thank you for the prompt feedback, very useful, but really I am just looking for some kind of general indication of what domestic mains gas costs the domestic punter per cubic metre

    eg, somebody might reply domestic mains gas costs the domestic punter 60p a cubic metre


    that's what I am looking for,

    Thanks,

    Milan.

    I wish it were that simple! There are tariffs on that site - but ach has different thresholds, dual fuel discounts(cheaper if electric included), direct debit discounts etcetc.

    You really should put in your usage then you will get a quote.

    How much Gas are you looking to use a year? With/without electric? If so, how much leccy? Paying by direct debit.

    My gas meter shows ‘gas units’ to be meters cubed, i.e. 1 gas unit = 1 m^3, but there is a small and mysterious volume conversion factor of 1.02264 to correct this as shown on the back of the bill.

    Basically for current prices where I am, standard pressure, temperature and energy content of the gas, etc, they provide a conversion formula from ‘gas units’ to kilowatts hours thus:

    Kilowatt hours = gas units * 1.02264 * 39.3156 / 3.6

    The 1.02264 is the volume conversion factor and the other stuff is because they are converting via calories instead of directly from Joules (maybe they haven’t quite got used to metric or they think fat people will try to eat the gas).

    So on my bill for example I had used 3 units last quarter (I’m a miser) and my gas bill of £1.43 was calculated as follows:

    3 units * 1.02264 * 39.3156 / 3.6 = 33.50 KWh and at 4.266 pence per KWh = 142.9 pence.

    So 1 unit (approx 1 m^3 or 11.17 KWh) costs 47.65 pence
    Or 1 KWh (1/11 of a unit or ~90 litres of gas) costs 4.266 pence.

    Sorry to be pedantic, but both of these errors bug me.

    a) 2 metres cubed is 8 cubic metres.

    b) A meter is a measuring device, except in that big country that doesn't acknowledge metric where they insist on spelling everything wrongly.
