I have some that I bought from Napa. Forgot what it is called but it was like $25 for a 5 foot roll? I have it under my IMS tank with about 10 hours on it and it's doing good.

I use a foil exhaust duct repair/splicing tape that has a peel-off backing on the adhesive. I found it at Home Depot. Very cheap, very effective.
