Fuel Line Issue into TBI... PLEASE HELP!

Yesterday I rebuilt my throttle body on my 93TBI motor. Naturally I had to take the fuel inlet plug out and fuel outlet plug also to take of the fuel regulator, injectors, etc... Anyways that went all fine and dandy put everything back together and realized now that im leaking fuel out of the fuel inlet plug where it threads into the Throttle Body. Before it was leaking pretty good now i got it to just a drip but still very dangerous as its running down my intake and fairly close to the headers..=FIRE... I dont wanna be stranded on the highway somewhere or in traffic with my motor on fire... Anyways ive tried everything... I went down even to the wreckers and got another plug but still no dice... the little plastic seal is on there as well so i know its not that..... now couldhave the threads stripped as i was taking it out/putting it in? It doesnt seem like they have as I can thread it in nicely and and gets tight/snug like it should? Would teflon tape work? I know the white kind wouldnt but dont they make a another brand for fuel and or other fluids? I am stumped
