3/8" brake lines & tube nuts.. can it be used to build my fuel line?

I went to the local auto store to pick up some 3/8" tubing and tube nuts for building a fuel line for my 69 vette.
They had 3/8" pre flared tubing, but the packaging says that it's for building brake lines.

Is there a difference between brake line tubing vs fuel line tubing? Can the tube nuts be used for both purposes?

Thanks

Works just fine.Altho an expensive way to do it a cheaper way is to buy a coil of line from jegs or summit and flare the tubing yourself.

I use it all the time on race cars, running pump gas, race gas or e-85.
They sell unions to join the 4 foot sections too if needed.
