OK. I paid my taxes, started an enjoyable thread, and bought the Pate tank also.

A question: In articles I've read, "Liquid Teflon" is recommended for installing and sealing any brass connections to the tank. Is "Liquid Teflon" the same as using a "Loktite" type substance?

Another question: Will regular teflon tape hold a fuel seal on a boat tank?

Thanks again,

Smith, D. F. USMC 1966-1972

I'll try to explain it as it was explained to me

I personally use teflon tape available at any napa store....
there are two kinds of teflon tape....the white and the yellow...

preferably the yellow is designated for use with pretroleum products and the white is used in conjunction with water primarily
as far as liquid teflon being put in the same basket as the various types of locktites.....they are not the same product with different intended uses. technically speaking
