Question CO2 Tubing - Help!

I want to use black silicon tubing for my CO2 injection. Some folks say I will lose the CO2 and others say the loss would be so minimal at that pressure. I use standard clear tubing now, I just like the cosmetic look on my black glass panel. Appreciate any feedback.

Is it same diameter? I think I looked at this but differing hose sizes.

3/16". Sold as air tubing. Feels like rubber.

I've used it, it's not as rigid as clear tubing, and therefor it can blow off any connections if there is too much pressure in the line, I've had this happen to me.

It can work under low working pressure, but under high working pressure it's a gamble.
