VHT & Dupli Color engine paints and high heat header paints are completely fuel resistant once they are cured good, same is true for the equipment enamels at tractor supply, not as big of a color choice in those but plenty of basic colors.
I may be missing some others that I've used over the years on automotive engine rebuilds and other small engines I've built and painter on Go Karts and such, haven't messed with painting things much in a long time, seems like the old Krylon Paints used to hold up just fine to gas years ago but I dont know if it still does or not.
