Brass fuel threads

Need to extend a fuel filler neck. The connection to the tank looks brass and is externally threaded. Can I join brass fittings for petrol fuel and would I need some sort of jointing compound or fuel safe stuff to go on threads before.

Thanks gt

Plumbers putty (make sure it's safe for whatever fuel you're using - usually says on the container) is ideal. Avoid teflon tape. Many well stocked auto parts shops have fuel line sealant, which is, as far as I can tell, the same as plumbers putty for 3 times the cost.
