Right, but I'm not sure Ian's original comment was refering to the 
regulator-to-tank nut.  He referred to his tapp-rite regulator coming 
"assembled with teflon tape".  But the attachment of the regulator to the 
tank is nearly always done by the end-user, not a manufacturer.  So would 
the regulator have come with teflon tape wrapped around the CGA-320 stem? 
I'm thinking he's referring to the outflow or meter ports instead.
