DO NOT use Vaseline! It will dissolve the rubber o-rings. I personally just use keg lube that I bought on line with a bunch of other kegging supplies (New rubber, poppets, fittings etc.)

+1 on the keg lube. I bought a big tube with an online order, and it looks like it'll be enough to last a decade.

Uh, no! Starsan will lubricate it going on, but dries rather sticky. spiting on it just invites infection.
