In Response To: Running a new electrical line (Greg)

If your garage is attatched to the house, you will need to use a 4-wire cable to the sub-panel 2 hots wires of opposite polarity, 1 neutral & 1 ground. You can use either romex or service cable. At the sub-panel the neutral wires need to be isolated from the bare wires (Do not install bond screw) and the panel itself. The bare ground bar will be bolted to the panelboard. #6 copper 4-wire romex will give you a 50-amp circuit. You can use a 100-amp main lug panel in your garage.
