No way is Teflon tape reacting with methanol! Now, Teflon pipe dope is particles of Teflon in a dispersion of an organic material (similar to specialty grease) . This stuf quite probably will react with methanol, removing the matix (greasy stuff) and leaving bare Teflon particles left with nothing to hold them in place. If you are manufacturing methanol, you should not be poluting your product. Use the tape.
