I would not, under any circumstance, use a push-fitting for an oil line. But, if you do, be very careful to get the high-temperature rated hose. Even that is marginal for typical track oil temperatures.
Thought push-locks were ok with the proper hose as long as the hose was hose clamped. Didn't Crusher use push lock fittings?

Good choice. I run all Fragola lines and fittings on my Subaru and never had an issue.

Fragola and Aeroquip push on with retention clamps on our cars.

The push-locks can be very hit or miss. I think most work fine with retention clamps, but a number of manufacturers say not to on the basis that the clamp, coupled with the size/sharpness of the barb can cut the ID of the hose.

Push locs are fine when using them for what they were designed for. When you assemble them correctly you literally have to cut them off. If you can pull them apart with your hands you did something wrong somewhere. Prefect solution for low pressure situations ie: catch can lines, fuel return, turbo drain, etc. Also as stated in a previous post, make sure they're supported properly.

Yes real push lok fittings from parker require the line to be cut off. They also don't sell a fuel rated hose, all of the hoses are designed for low pressure petro based hydrualic fluid, water/glycol, and air. And parker also warns against using any sort of clamps with them, they claim the clamp can compromise the integrity of the seal.

Push lok and barb w/ clamp are two very different animals.
