Fuel leak

Hi all, I have a water separator on my rib but there is a very very slight leak via the threads where the fuel line goes into it. I was thinking about putting some fuel resistant silicon on the threads before I tighten them up again. Does anyone have any ideas or know of any petrol resistant silicon I can use.
