What type of gasket btwn the Petcock & Tank?

What type of gasket material or seal is between the petcock and the gas tank? The replacement tank I got has the residue of what looks like black adhesive material on it.

RTV will disolve slowly in contact with gasoline so be careful there.

The O ring you need is here.
