Anybody have any good recomendations for 6mm airline tee fittings that DONT leak?

I've got one for my in-vehicle pressure gauge thats tee'd into the tank line, but I cannot seem to get the thing to stop being leaky. I've tried the plastic one and the metal one you can get off ebay and whatnot.

You need a Wade brass "T" fitting.
Type N ferrule. Metric size for 6mm od/4mm id nylon tube.

Not sure if they sell them in the States so you may need to find an equivalent.
Push in pneumatic fittings start to leak once you make and break them a few times. They also don't have the heat rating if you use them under the hood.

Yes, it looks the right type.
The ferrule pushes in the end of the nylon tube and the brass olive tightens down on it.

I bought some on eBay when I installed my 'T' line off the tank to run an air line into the loadspace. Used the push-in type to start with and then ditches it pretty quick for the nut/olive type.

I've been tempted to see if I can tap the ports on the valve block and put threaded fittings on that too!

I've always used the 1/4 DOT approved compression fittings over here, never had a problem or leak.
Get them from any big truck dealer/repair shop

try your local hydraulic shop (pertec or hose doctor etc) they should have a wall of brass fitting of all shapes and sizes if that's what your after.

Here in the states, there is next to zero support for metric fittings.
Scotty did source some IIRC, he was ending them with the Rover Raisers, either push lock or compression.
