Trying to figure out the Input BTU on Viking Range

I own a 36" Viking range with 6 open burners and convection oven. I am trying to find out the input BTU of the range. I'm sure it's on the plate in the back of the oven but I don't want to have to move this monster to check.

The specs say each burner is rated at 15K BTU and the oven is 30K BTU. So do I multiply the 15K by 6 to get total for the burners and then add the oven? That would bring the total to 120K BTUs. That sounds like a lot?

You could check by reading your gas meter before and after using the oven. 100,000 BTU = ~ 100 cubic of NG.
120,000 btu/hr will be 12,000 btu in six minutes will be 12 cubic feet of gas in six minutes.
