Does this unit come with a gas pressure regulator?

The range is supplied with the required appliance regulator.  Depending on the gas system, a first stage regulator may be required.  This scenario likely when using high pressure natural gas or propane gas in general.  Confirm with the licensed plumber installing the unit. 

This is a high BTU range and any inline devices and piping upstream of the range must be sized appropriately.  Improper gas systems will result in poor performance.
