valve replacement

I was needing to replace the schrader valve on my fuel rail and wanted to know if i can use the ones made for car AC systems ?
Also wasnt sure if it had same seal locations on the valve .

A replacement valve from an A/C system will work. I would match it by eye as there is more than one type available.

Thanks.Your correct but incorrect as i found out the hard way..the upper stems are longer on the ones for fuel..i can not get the gauge to reach far enough into stem from ac valve core for a test -as tight as it goes its not deep enough..i compared old gas one an new-ac one and saw a slight length difference on upper core..
Issue now is locating a new one since dealer discontinued them and i dont want a used one.

Never use AC or tire valve cores if u expect to be able to get the pressure reading .. but for a leak they work!
