Which type of gas line?

I'm getting ready to install a new Nocold and the only specification for the supply line is 3/8 copper. Any difference in what I use ; (type UT or L ) is one prefered over the other?

I believe that type K flexible copper tubing is the only thing officially recommended.

Did some more checking and found a great online publication The Copper Tube Handbook from the Copper Development Association ; according to them L is the preferred type; K is for medical gases , especially Oxygen. L is available at Menards . I shudder to think about the cost of K since it has a medical use.
