Ok i'm going to be installing my Raptor lp tomorrow and in the instructions it says to use a diesel compatible thread sealer on the fittings. Which product would you guys recommend?

Thanks

Ditto. Just make sure the tape doesn't hang out over the end of the threads. That way it won't be in the fuel flow. It should all be in the threads.

Don't use the regular teflon tape. Diesel will degrade it and it will leak--I know. That's what I used when I first installed my gauges.
I then used the permatex listed above and have not had a problem for 3 years now. You can also use the yellow teflon tape that is hydrocarbon resistant. You can find it at Home Depot or Lowes.

Yeap... You need to use diesel fuel rated sealants. Becareful with any sealant that you don't get it into the fuel system...
