Be careful when you purchase any hose for gasoline use.  It could be possible that it was manufactured using the older rubber compounds.  NOS is probably NOT good.

I can not comment on what the AMC vendors are selling today.  I just don't know.

i bought the host from Summitracing.com in nov 2018. i overlooked, at that time, that Summit clearly marked it as "not suitable for alcohol...", that the markigns on the hose whatever they are, when i looked them up, pertained to pressure and other ratings, and not for permeability.

i'm quite happy with California CARB regulations on permeability. i know everone loves to hate CA, but i personally remembe being made ill by Los Angeles smog in the 1970's, just getting off a plane. its not like that any more. whatever this costs, it's fine. YMMV.

though i did just get burned by a Prop 65 ("carcinogen") regulatory problem -- it's quite hilarious, slightly OT here -- RockAuto has 12" windshield wipers for my car, but i cannot purchase them, as rockauto doesn't have Prop65 data on them (likely made 1,000,000 years ago so of course not).

i find it hard to believe that the Dayco hose was a "bad batch", especially enhanced by the explicit 'no alcohol' statement.

yeah, i don't need "FI" hose at all. but FI hose applications seem to encompass the other features (fuel resistance, permeability) that i wanted.

also, i only needed two feet of it!

I have had problems with gas hose cracks.Cracks at the carb from the inside out or turns hard.Takes about a year.I put extra length on and cut the end off to expose soft hose.When the hose gets short I put another new one on.
