Thanks, tbear, yes, that was what I thought I had figured out. That's good. My only concern then, again, is that the shutoff valve is extremely difficult to turn. I may give PSE&G a call about that.

1poorguy, I've been wondering about the reading myself... I wonder if they might do it electronically. Our water company has a setup where they can read the meter wirelessly from the street - they're meter is likewise in the bastment. In fact our only outside meter is the electric. Don't know if PSE&G may have the same for gas. I guess I'll find out pretty soon if they start calling to read the meter or if all my bills shows up as 'estimated'.

I think the arrangement though is as tbear said, because the line "#1" does indeed go to just an open metal plug outside, which makes sense. I haven't found anything outside the house related to gas, but maybe I'll take another look tomorrow.

And thanks, Eugeneous for the comment on the wire. I'll look into it.


So unless Seattle has a different interpretation of the setup, just wondering if there's anything I can do to improve the 'turnability' of the shutoff valve.
