Use of Teflon Tape on fuel fittings

Better to use teflon tape than teflon pipe dope.

Less chance of the ''carrier'' in PTFE pipe dope from dissolving leaving the PTFE particles free to migrate down the piping stream. PTFE dope is notorius as a ''particle generator, PTFE tape wont ''particulate''.
