Some of these ideas are REALLY overkill, but if you are bored and have the time, I guess you can do that. I just use a thin layer of oil resistant black RTV on each side of the gasket, and tighten the pan in a criss cross pattern in 2 steps, first to get contact with light pressure, then a second time to snug them all up.

It's really that simple.
