Evan, RTV silicone, black, blue, or red, is NOT what you need. That type of gasket silicone swells a good bit when immersed in gasoline, which is what you don't want. You are going to have to buy some junk online, probably.

I'd run a gasket underneath the adapter, then run some silicone around the edge of the gasket. What fuel cell and adapter is it? theres probably already a gasket out there that will fit right on.
