I have a 3 yr old electronic meter. We did have a sprinkler system leak that was fixed in dec 2021 caught it bc high bill on an empty house. All of a sudden in jan/Feb high Bill's again 400-450 per gallons a day used..still vacant. 1300× gallons of water a day used. No running toilets they are cut off. No dripping faucets, no we areas, grass is dead n all crunchy. No wetness in house or water damage. Interesting thing, if I turn the water cutt off on just a little we get water but no noticable movement on the meter, if I turn it on full its 2 gallons a minute. The cities response has been you used the water. So I'm at a lose, can a plumber test the meter?

If the stopcock is passing even very slightly then the pressure test will only reflect the mains static pressure which may go up as well as down.
