    Since the ampacity of the conductors are 90C we can use the 75 C unless it is in thermal insulation. This rule has changed many times over the years.

    I see your point as the code does a back door...

    I agree-- sounds good. The minimum size for a range 8 3/4 kw or more is 40 amps-- 210.19(A)(3). Look at T. 210.21 (B)(3)

    The reason why you must use the 75C instead of the 90 is because the temperature limitation on the terminals is generally 75C not 90C so you must size to the weakest link.

    Do you mean dwelling or the dwelling and associated loads???? Yes the service conductors would qualify but not the feeders to the house and garage, IMO

    You really need to get someone who has experience. It is very unusual to run 3 conduits and is only allowed under certain conditions. I doubt that this job would qualify
