Why does my Gates 27313 Barricade ¼ I.D. 50 psi fuel hose non F.I. say non road use only?

I thought since my '73 Beetle has a 34PICT3 carb this hose would be OK.

I think I might cut out the parts of the hose where it says 'non road use' and go ahead and use it.

It might be labeled 'for non-road use' if it is not registered with the EPA for on-road use.

Could I be in any trouble for using it?
There are no vehicle inspections where I live.

Any help is appreciated.
TIA!

Given that its even CARB legal (California) I suspect its "non fuel injection use", which is true.
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...
