Try a bit of fuel grade plumbers tape. Apply one streched thin layer and cinch it up tight without undue side stress. The tapered ferule end must be properly seated and undamaged to swage properly.
You'll have to post pictures of the B6 for all to see what is the problem.

Try not to read political postings but assume if you have the drive to DIY you didn't vote Democrat.

I'd like to help, but can't after reading your non-sense.

Can you take the hose to a hyd shop and have them make you a new one with your old fittings?

You'll need a lot more part numbers if you continue to run that thing taped up like that.

Thats the return line so there isn't alot of fuel pressure there but take the whole thing off and take it to a hydraulic hose shop and have them replace the rubber line, or buy a new one.

I probably shouldn't say this because the rubber hose may be dryrotted and ready to spring a new link if bent or wrestled with and then possibly fuel a fire, but if you have to drive the car you could cut a slit in the metal crimp carefully without going too deep with a cut off wheel on a die grinder or dremel tool. Then pry the rest off with needlenose pliers.
Then cut the mangled end of the rubber hose off so you have a fresh end of the hose, slide it on the barbed steel line and put a hose clamp on it.
Thats not a permanent fix but it should last till you fix it right.

The only intention for the red tape was to indicate the particular hose in question.
It's not leaking at the fitting. There is a major hole in the hose 8" left of the tape.
Think i'll just take it to hose pros.

What is the fitting at the far end of the return line?

If this is anything other than a straight fitting you have very little twist to connect it.

Before you go to a "Hydraulic shop", be sure of the orientation.

Once crimped you cannot twist it more than a few degrees.
