Yup. There will be no pressure in that hose. Hack that baby off and replace it with a new piece of hose that can stand up to petroleum product, (not vacuum hose). If the rubber hose is crimped onto the metal tube, cut a slot in that crimp with an air cutoff tool, peel it open and throw it away. The line will be barbed to prevent the hose from sliding off. Put the hose clamp on beyond that barb.
