diesel fuel resistant seal?

I am putting in a drain plug in the bottom of the main fuel tank. I'll have a small flange in the inside and one on the outside of the tank (both clamped or sandwiched together). Will any kind of rubber seal stand up to diesel fuel or can someone recommend what's best? The tank is made of that high strength fibre. Thanx, in advance.

I wouldn't use any type of seal.
You going to use something like a FUMOTO ENGINE OIL DRAIN VALVE?
I don't think you need an internal seal/gasket just an external. That being said you might be able to use any type.
I'm sure someone will chime in with there expertise.
