Hi Bob
I used Permatex No 3 gasket cement  as well as a paper gasket. You could
probably use Stag jointing paste as both of these are unaffected by fuel.
Silicone is no good as the fuel reacts with it

We have a small problem with our BN2: we can't get the sender unit to 
completely seal against the tank.  We've tried all types of materials; 
inc. the Moss rubber-like gasket, paper gasket material, cork, etc.  
This is a new tank and the flange around the opening isn't as robust as 
on an original tank, and the flange on the sender has been warped 
somewhat, probably by over-tightening.  The best result has been from a 
cork gasket my dad fabricated, but it still seeps a little with a full tank.

Any suggestions?
