Last time I was in Harbor Freight tools of all places they had Hylomar in the 5" long tubes.
It was the real stuff made in the UK.
Cost around $5, maybe a little less.

I've seen it from Wurth and Permatex in the little tubes too.
Also comes in a pint sized tub.

It is by far the most versatile gasket sealer ever made. Gas doesn't touch it and any silicone gasket sealer swells up into a rippled mess when gas gets on it.
It is blue colored and never ever dries, and always stays sticky, smearable, and gooey.
That makes it seal better on surfaces that expand and contract with temperature changes and it will always wipe off surfaces or your hands with a rag soaked with laquer thinner. Very easy to cleanup.

Some people even use it to seal Porsche case halves.
It was designed for and origonally used on the P51 mustang Rolls Royce V12 Merlin engines in WWII as far as I know.
