The only thing that I have found that works is....Permatex. The Old # 2, that is. RTV compounds and hylomax just don't cut it--they dissolve or swell up and make a gooey mess. Been there, done that.

That is interesting. I'd still try some on a test surface (exposed to gasoline) for a few weeks before believing it. Hylomax sez that it's gasoline proof. It's not, turns into a runny mess. Tried som
