Default Oil hose - automotive

I notice some slight leaking around the black rubbers oil return hoses from the cylinder heads.

I have some new black rubber auto power steering hose of the same size.

Is going to be safe as the aviation variety ?


I would like to see if this is the source of the leaking.

I plan eventually replacing this with something like teflon in 25 hours when do a oil change.

Heater hose may not be oil resistant . Go to NAPA auto parts and ask for oil resistant hose in the size needed.
