Crank, no. It deforms the ferrule and that causes leaks. You tighten finger tight and one or two full turns and check for leaks. If it leaks, depressurize and go another 1/4 turn to half a turn and check again. Repeat as needed. Nothing on the ferrule or nut. Perferably an insert in the end of the tubing.
