There are (at least) two types of flare nuts. The common one is called a long flare nut. The other one that is heavier duty is a forged flare nut. I tried to copy a pic to display to show the difference but apparently don't know how. You can Google for a pic,

As noted earlier, do not use Teflon tape or thread sealant on flare or compression joints. The tape and sealant are meant to be used on pipe thread joints.

Also, use only flare fittings on gas lines...not compression.

The long flare nut is actually meant for water. The short one is used on gas. The flare pitch is the same, but threads on the gas one is a fine thread.
