Fuel Filter

I'm replacing my fuel filter and I had to remove the black bypass tubing and reattach it to the new filter. Probably from age the black tubing is a loose fit on the filter. Anyone know if it would create a problem trimming 3/8" of the tubing to get a tight fit again?

Won't hurt anything if it's still long enough. Otherwise, put a hose clamp on it.

Or live it up and buy a new piece of hose.
