O-Rings & Fuel

I need some O-rings for diesel & gas jerry jugs plus my diesel deck fuel inlet.

Are hardware store O-rings OK for diesel & gas?

That's what I used. Never had any issues. Always replaced the diesel and water fill and the holding tank O-rings once a year.

Yes, the “standard” (Buna-N) O-Ring is probably ok (if they fit & seal) but see:
