The use of a SILICONE based grease only, is fine for the o-rings inside the regulator of an HPA tank (just enough to make them 'wet' looking). Use nothing on the fill side of things.
The danger is when a flammable (hydrocarbon based) lubricant is subjected to compression/heat inside an HPA tank ... think diesel engine ... not the output end of things.
