LPG plumbing - teflon tape?

The day is nearly here to re-commission the LPG system.

I have new tanks that aren't rusted out, a new Trident regulator with pressure gauges for leak checking, the locker has been painted inside with bilgekote, and I have a new solenoid valve / leak detector unit.

The valve will go in the locker just after the regulator, and the leak detector sensor will go in the bilge.

There's an existing pre-made hose to the locker which I'm going to re-use.

So all I need to do is fit the solenoid valve to the regulator, and the hose to the valve. Is teflon tape still the thing? I ask because I've heard of better liquid sealants that set.
