Propane cylinders are TANK pressure and what regulator "you" install at the cylinder or tank determines if high or low pressure comes out of the regulator. 

Other points of interest:

Type 1 & 2 Kits can not be used on natural gas.

Type 3 & 4 Kits can be used on low pressure propane.

bullet

A and C Kits can be used instead of the Type 3 and 4 Kits if the engine is 12hp or less.

bullet

A and C Kits can be used instead of the Type 1 and 2 Kits if the high pressure line is stepped down to low pressure and the engine is 12hp or less.

bullet

If using a propane cylinder or tank just for the generator order a Type 1 or Type 2 Kit with a PGK accessory for 13hp or larger engines.  For engine 12hp or smaller order the Type A or C Kit with an NPSK accessory.

bullet

If the gas pipe propane system is single staged, one regulator which is only low pressure, order a low pressure kit Type A or Type C.

bullet

If you the system has a RED regulator at your tank, then high pressure is available.  If the regulator is gray, green, silver, tan, brown, etc. it is low pressure or a single stage low pressure system.

Very often, single stage systems can be easily changed to two stage by adding a high pressure regulator at the tank and moving or adding a low pressure regulator at the building.
