First, rule out pinhole leaks from the tank.

Working from memory--I'm zero for one today--the wire-wound resistor and 
slider are housed in a small, box-like housing; is this what you're 
referring to? If so, I don't think any vendors have a gasket for the 
screwed-on 'lid,' but you can make a gasket and put some fuel-resistant 
sealer on it. If there's an actual terminal, separate from the box, that 
comes through the box, I'd probably use a good epoxy.

This is a sealer I've had success with: *https://tinyurl.com/ya22sjep
