I use plumber's teflon putty. I have used RTV in the past with no trouble. Either one doesn't require a lot, just coat the first few threads. As it squishes off the threads it will get picked up the subsequent threads. Clean off the excess religiously because you don't want it squishing out under the head gasket.
