    Re: I am fueling at home.. Woohoo!!

    The installation is a easy if you have some mech/elect background. Make sure you gas line is at least 1 1/4 " if you are running off the standard 7"wc gas pressure line. You can buy elect and gas meters at Austin Inc....40 bucks each. The gas meter goes on the low pressure (inlet) side of the FMQ. Follow the manufactures instructions, this unit is not approved for indooor use

    Let us know how it goes, good luck

        I believe they are 1" in and out. Over size your lines, I know it does not make much sense to run 1 1/4" to a 1" meter and then connect to a 1/2" at the FMQ but it works. I'm on my third FMQ install and all of the problems have been related to the size/pressure of the gas line.

          Raising the pressure at the regulator is a simple remedy. The fuelmaker pumps fastest at higher pressure as well according to the specs in the manual.
          Ideally you would branch off for the fuelmaker and install a step down regulator, immediately after it for the rest of the house.
