Inverted Flare Fittings
Inverted flare fittings are most commonly used in hydraulic brakes, power steering, fuel lines, and transmission cooler lines. They're very reliable; not only are they inexpensive and reusable, but they also provide excellent vibration resistance. Because their seats and threads are also internal and protected, they provide a very secure seal.
AN or Army/Navy fittings are to military standards set by the government to allow interchangeability and compatibility of components made by different manufacturers. An Army/Navy system uses a dash number assigned for each metal size tubing and its corresponding fittings, tubes and hoses.
Hose Barb Fittings
Beaded or barb fittings are hose-to-fitting connections, which consist of a pipe with a slight flare in it. These fittings are the most common connection types and are found on all vehicles. These fuel hose connectors are practical, generally affordable, effective, and do not require any special end fitting. The hoses just slide on and can be secured with a hose clamp.
Hose barb fittings are commonly used in fuel lines, coolant lines, PCV/Emissions hoses and radiator hoses. A high-pressure EFI rated fuel hose clamp should be utilised when using barb fittings and rubber hoses for fuel injection systems.
SAE Quick Connect
SAE quick connections are generally used on all modern OEM fuel systems. These fittings have no threads and just make use of o-rings and locks.
Push-Lock Hose Ends
Push-on hose fittings have a unique means to attach a hose-end to a rubber hose. They are designed to sustain low and medium pressure. They have various aggressive barbs that lock inside the hose to create a seal. These fittings are quick to connect and have high resistance to vibration damage. Thus, with the proper hose, you won't need clamps to connect.
