You wouldn't use silicone sealant on any gasoline fitting. Gasoline will curdle and release it. If the gasket is felt or paper or cork, you might use a gasket dressing that is rated for gasoline immersion (continuous exposure) but if it is a plastic or rubber type material, no gasket dressing/sealer is usually needed.
