Default propane Vs acetylene (hoses)

does anyone use an actual propane hose for the propane to their torch ?

Propane hoses are ORANGE and Acetylene hoses are RED ... every glass torch that I've seen ... anywhere ... always has a red hose connecting the propane.

Propane hose is considerably more expensive and less common that acetylene hose ... but (as far as I know) propane eats away at the lining of the acetylene hose and is unsafe.
