Default Do you need to change O rings?

Ok so I took out my fuel rail to inspect the injectors and clean/test them, I just reused the same o-rings, wondering if I did bad and I should have bought new ones?

On the injectors I clean, I often find that the used rings fit loosely in the bench adapters, and leak.. So often, that I just change them B4 bothering to try a test...

You may get away, may not...Murphy live around your place?? He does here!
