you have to have a tool. Kinda like the one for ford a/c lines if you know what that is. Napa sells them in a kit with 6 different sizes I think. all it is, is a little plastic collar that goes around the fuel line and you push it into the coupling and release a spring.

If you want to try this it has worked for me a few times. The little plastic piece that stays on a coke/water bottle after you remove the cap. you can cut that off and use that to push inside the coupling and see if you can get it that way. not as easy as the tool but can work.

While you are in there do the tank and prepump filter mods, the factory fittings use the special disconnect tool described in the previous post (around $10 for a set), these style fittings work great under pressure but suck in air under vacuum. Thrash them and put rubber hose with hose clamps in their place. Look at the pictures of my fuel system mods in my signature link to see what I'm talking about.
