It's a flare fitting; it seals on the flare. So you are not only wasting your time w/ Teflon tape, if a piece of it gets in the carb, you will be walking home.
Do NOT use any tool to start the connection. Get it started w/ your fingers. Once you have it finger tight on both ends, then & only then, get out your flare wrench.
