Use of Teflon Tape on fuel fittings

I went to some plumber friends first. They recommended the Rectorseal product as being very good. Being plumbers, they were the ones to say "Go with the teflon" go figure, hey they''re plumbers...

After reading the post regarding the teflon compound breaking down, I called the manufacturer. Getting in touch with their technical support group was easy, describing the conditions, ie: bronze threads, diesel, etc. they recommended their "No. 5" product, citing it''s excellent proberties with bronze threads and diesel.
