Is this fuel line normal or damaged?

This is the fuel line on the rear of my LTR, between the 2 rails. It looks like the fitting has shifted on the hose, but it is tight and doesn't move. There is no leakage. Is this normal or cause for concern?

I’d replace it if it is convenient also I’d replace it if it is a pain in the a$$

Looks like the fitting at the right in the photo may have turned when it was tightened.

If it doesn't leak, consider removing it during the off-season and taking it to a shop that makes hydraulic hoses, to be tested (if they do that) or replaced. Hydraulic hoses are subjected to far higher pressure than this ever would.

It's fine if it's not leaking. Yes, the clamp is shifted a bit, but these hoses are way overbuilt relative to the pressure they handle.
