AN refers to the American standard 'Ármy Navy'...hence ÁN'.
AN6 refers to 6/16 outside diameter (OD) of the tube. Hence the tube would have an OD of 3/8". The inside diameter (ID) of the tube is not specified under this system, hence the ID can vary depending on the application and material...there is a way of determining this too, depending on material etc. In the case of hose, it can generally be assumed AN6 corresponds to 6/16 (3/8) ID. Obviously the ID of hose is generally set up to match the OD of (metal) tube.
AN8 relates to 8/16 or 1/2"diameter, and so on.
For fuel, AN6 is plenty.
