Teflon tape used on pipes that carry gasoline and or diesel fuel.


Is teflon tape approved to be used on piping that handles gasoline or diesel fuels?

I believe there are at least two kinds of teflon tape: white and yellow. Who used the tape (you?) and for what kind of plumbing setup with gas or diesel? Residential or commercial or automotive?

There are actually at least three kinds: white, yellow, and pink. White is sort've general purpose, pink is for potable water, and yellow is for gas lines.

From another web site....

Quote:
White tape is single density and intended for water pipes of 3/8 of an inch or less. It can sometimes be found in a silver color to match the pipes.

Red tape is triple density, for pipes one-half inch to 2 inches in diameter. It is designed for pipes with larger joints, such as water distribution pipes. Note that the container is red, but the tape itself looks pink.

Yellow tape is double density, and designed for gas and fuel lines.

Green tape is grease and oil free, and designed for pipes carrying oxygen.
