if you're going to DIY this repair, go with black iron. There is CSST, but all the companies that I know of won't sell to you unless you're certified to install it, even if you have a gas ticket.

This is not the only Zombie that they brought back out of the grave. Probably did a search engine search, never looked at the post date.

I would strongly suggest you contact you gas supplier and get their requirements. I personally so not recommend a none professional do gas. But then again I do not supply your house insurance that you will need in the advent of a fire. If said fire was traced back to your installed line they just might opt not to cover you.

That is pure speculation. I bet you cannot quote anything in your policy that states something that can reasonably be translated that any unpermitted gas line or electrical work resulting in fire will not be a covered peril.

No, but you will find that if things are not in compliance with National, State, and Local codes or were not inspected, or a permit drawn, or work was done by someone not qualified or licensed to to the work, that they may not pay.
