Your product review says it works on gas lines like propane the testimonials say the same. The Oatey website does not even have this product on it. I have built a two stroke machine and need to seal a gasoline tank that may hold regular gas as well as gas oil mix.

Answer: 
I wouldn't suggest trying it for gasoline. The gas lines mentioned for this product and other Teflon tapes are typically gasses like air, propane, argon, etc. Not petroleum. To my knowledge, not even the "gas resistant" (yellow) teflon tape is suited to the use you're intending.
I would suggest a PermaTex product such as Permatex 80016 Form-A-Gasket for your particular application.

Answer: 
NO, do not use this tape on gasoline or gasoline/oil mixes.
According to Oatey's website use ONLY the "Yellow” tape on gasoline or gasoline/oil mixes.

Will this work with shower fixtures; e.g., hoses and heads

This question is from 1/2 in. x 260 in. PTFE Thread Seal Tape
Asked by

September 14, 2015
I'm trying to upgrade my shower hose and head, I bought a couple of different models, but the stuff that came with the fixtures and more I bought from Harbor Freight, will not keep the water from leaking and/or spraying up on the back of the shower wall, I have to put a small towel over the top of the connection; where the water comes up and over, to connect into the hose, to keep it from "spraying". Hopefully, this will work, without needing a towel. Thanks.

Answer: 
Have you narrowed down how the water is leaking from your fixtures? Is it possible that a gasket is damaged or missing? This product should help with minor leaking through the threads, as I use it on 120psi air lines all the time for just that purpose, and I used it on my own shower head installation not long ago which hasn't leaked yet.

Answer: 
You need to wrap it 10-20 times, clockwise. Then tighten the fitting with a wrench until it is nice and tight. I've had many connections leak due to a lack of tape and/or not tight enough, but I never had an issue with too much tape.

Answer: 
Yes, as long as the pipes in question are threaded, it should work just fine. If it is the "quick-connect" style of drain pipe, which have flanged ends with a rubber gasket and a lock ring, this product will not help, however. If those start to leak, the gasket is probably due for replacement.

Answer: 
Yes
PTFE = Teflon tape
Color is irrelevant in terms of function
The issue to look out for is HOW THICK IS IT?
They don't quote a specification for the thickness of this product. The yellow stuff is 4 mils, feels thicker, and costs more
I've had leaks with this and other stuff on plastic fittings. The yellow stuff stops the leaks.

Answer: 
Hi Ramblon,
Fastape, works on any type of pipe connection, which makes it better then yellow tape due to its versatility.
Thus you will only need one roll of pipe sealing tape instead of two or three.

Customer Reviews

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tape that finally worked. I had a rough time stopping leaks on several pvc threaded pipe connections in Irrigation valves etc. Luckily ran into this last tape in a bin which stopped all leaks. No going anymore with other teflon tapes. October 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good, Leak-Free product. This is a solid, USA-made alternative to the cheap Chinese-made Teflon tapes you'll find almost everywhere else. I've used this at work for air compressor fittings, air lines, etc. and also at home for sinks, garden hoses, shower heads, and even more air compressor fittings & lines. In every case this Teflon tape was used, there were no leaks to be found. At all. When I was still using the cheap Chinese stuff that comes on a white and blue roll, I would have to re-wrap fittings with a fair amount of regularity because leaks would develop either immediately or over time. Not so with this Oatey FAST Tape! Trust me, it's worth the price difference over the "other guys'" tape. July 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice tape that's a good alternative to cheap teflon choices It seems like you can't find quality teflon tape anymore these days. You used to be able to do three wraps of tape on the thread and you'd have a leak-free connection without fail. Now it's a guessing game. Well this FASTape product takes us back to the quality teflon tape of the past. Anything else is a waste of money. May 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thick & Nice to Work With Found this USA manufactured tape to be a nice upgrade from from the rolls of Chinese tape they pile in those bins. This stuff is thick, dense and and a cinch to install, especially when used on coarse threading such as NPT (National Pipe Taper) and is a wonderful alternative to messy, "pipe-dope". Well worth the extra buck or so over the cheap stuff! :) December 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for air fittings I could never get my air fittings to seal properly with the cheaper, thin, white teflon tape. Read that using the thicker teflon tape for gas lines would be better, so I went to purchase some and found this next to the gas line tape. Decided to purchase this because of previous reviews. I am impressed. I replaced all the old teflon tape with this (about 15 joints for my setup). As a test, I ran my compressor until the max of 175 psi, and waited. Four days later, it is still at 175 psi. Amazing! I gave away my white teflon tape and have purchased a couple rolls of this and will use nothing but from now on. October 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes Install a dream... Installed new shower wand and hose. Did trim off excess. Absolutely no leaks the first time. Think I'll redo my scuba gear. Great Stuff! June 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Multiple uses No need to carry separate tapes for gas, air, or water. This one seal tape is good to go on all three. It is a heavier weight so you get a great seal every time. September 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THICK This is thick tape. Two wraps will do ya, and you don't spend 2 min. getting it off the roll. May 17, 2013
