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.
