With gas it is a similar process. If the gas line is and will be accessible after the range is connected, then you can usually use a union. If it will be enclosed, then you need a left/right nipple and union. Installing this, and doing it properly, is not something I would suggest for a neophyte.In this situation, I would contact a plumber, especially since the L/R fitting may not be readily available to you.

: I need to break into an existing black iron pipe gas line to install a line to a new gas stove. Is there an easy way to do this or do i have to disassemble everything to the end of the line?
: If this was a water line , I would just cut the shortest nipple install a tee and a union and a short nipple to make up the original distance. I realize i can't do that with gas but i hope there is an easier way than disassembling everything.
