Current Topic:
best self lubricating Material for Bush used in Gasoline Dispensing Pump
I would consider one of the following:

Carbon fiber filled teflon
Carbon filled UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight PolyEthelene)
or possibly even Carbon/Carbon composites. all of these have the advantage of being conductive and therefore won't generate static charges which could ignite the gasoline.
