    Not acceptable in that specific locations, but isn't that what you use between the propane tank for your gas grill and the burners - a rubber hose? Those ends look like the high pressure ends on those gas hoses.

    I doubt that hose is listed or labeled for use as a gas line, natural or propane.
    Even if it were labeled, it should be located after a shutoff valve.

    On propane gas systems, I sometimes see a rubber hose outside on the bottle.
    But I would call that one - amateur installation, possible leak hazard.

    No sediment trap either.

    There are other things not right in the photo besides just that being a rubber hose in that location, I was just pointing out that being a rubber hose used for gas (if in the proper location) is okay, and gave an example of where one would see a rubber used used day in and day out.

    I found a radiator hose, with hose clamps, connecting the gas manifold to the furnace one time.
