Has anyone used pro seal to replace a fuel sender gasket? Thats what we do on RV's. They stopped using those gaskets years ago cause they always leak.

Cheers.

Get the rubber gasket, snug it gently, and you’ll like it a lot. Better when you take it off next time. Usually the old cork ones just need a little snuggling up.

It was suggested to me to use a thin layer of fuel lube on both sides of the rubber gaskets when I install my new fuel senders. Obviously, you don't want to risk a big glob of it finding it's way into the tank, so use sparingly.

Proseal is probably too tuff when the time ultimately comes again to get back in, but also being an experimental guy ( RV-8R) I conducted a experiment on various sealants and the affects of avgas, pump gas with and without ethanol, 5606, straight alcohol ( no not the drinking kind) . Other than pro Proseal I found Permitex Ultra Gray to be unaffected. So FWIW Permitex Ultra Gray would be good option.
