I don't always get it correct and sometimes one or two slip through.
I agree about the current rating.
Not sure without checking , but I don't think the t.e.r includes the 5 yr rating and also there's something in the formula about 100 or 200 points below current rating I seem to remember(again without checking).
A straight average shouldn't be difficult to implement.
