Default Fuel Pressure Gauge???

I just bought a fuel pressure gauge (for my 1990) that mounts on the schrader valve on the fuel rail.

My question is, can (do I) I use teflon as a sealer to ensure there are no leaks?

Thanks in advance!

i prefer paste for that reason

tape can clog the guage and make it not work right.

don't over-paste it though either, it'll be jsut as bad

paste gets very messy if you mess up. Tape is the easy fast way to go
