Don't use anything. Clean both surfaces with something like brake clean so there is no oil or grease and make sure both surfaces are dry. Make sure the pan flange is flat. Sometimes if the bolts have been over-torqued, the pan flange will deform at the bolt holes. Check around the bolt holes and flatten them back out if needed. Install the gasket and pan & torque. Torque is somewhere around 12-13ft lbs.
