Vacuum hoses generally should not have hose clamps.

I wouldn't use silicone on my hoses. Generally I only have to lube the fuel hoses to slide them on, and for that I use fuel. There's usually some around where I'm installing the hose, and it certainly won't contaminate the fuel that goes through them...

The fittings on the bottom of the gas tank originally had fiber washers to seal them. A recent thread mentioned one place that carried one of them, the other seems to be NLA. Maybe you could make your own if you can find the material?
