You should normally not use teflon pipe tape on gas fittings (the same goes

gas lines you normally use a pipe thread compound that is goo-in-a-can.

Why shouldn't I be using teflon tape? Does it just not help, or does it actively impair the seal?

(This is a very timely question since I just emptied my big tank and need a refill....)
