    can any one tell me if 25mm meter tails will fit in a standard domestic meter or should i use 16mm.i was thinking of using 25mm as the incoming fuse is rated at 100amps and i been told 25mm will carry 125amps.i also been told 16mm will only carry about 80 amp and therefore would melt before fuse did. so i need to know if the 25mm will fit in meter.

    It's up to your supply authority to ensure that you have the correct sized tails(25mm) and that their meter will accomadate them. No worries:)
