What kind of gas regulator do I need for my 45k electric generator?
The gas meter is 200 feet away. The gas company wants to put a high pressure regulator at the meter and a low pressure regulator at the building to service to building and the generator. Is that right or do I need a separate regulator for the generator?

    What the gas company will do is send approx. 5 psi of gas to a pounds to ounce regulator for the building and generator. This is correct. Depending what the manufacture says, you will need approx. 14 oz of gas pressure to run that generator, and maintain that pressure at full load. The most critical part is that the regulator be sized correctly, to maintain pressure in building while generator runs under load. Check with manufacture for BTU requirement of generator. If this is not correct there will be nothing but problems in the future. If the generator does not have an ounce to ounce regulator (for fine tuning) that will have to be added at the generator. Good luck
