    NO, it can be set up for LP, but you usually have to ask for them, but if you ask for a natural gas valve you will be ok.

    Most always they are nat, look in the box for a lp kit they usual send one with them if its a Honeywell valve. Also it should say what pressure it's setup for so that will tell you

    Not always. Some late '90's Carrier package units had 3.5" L.P. manifold pressures.
    Beware of advice given by some guy on the Internet.
