1. A tool for disconnecting a fuel line having a longitudinal axis from a fitting, said fuel line of the type including a biased, locking ring for retaining the fuel line engaged with the fitting, said fuel line being disengaged from the fitting by longitudinal axis movement from the fitting, said tool comprising, in combination;

  • a first arm member, said first arm member including an elongate body member with a first end and a second end and having a generally elongate axis from the first end to the second end;

    a first semi-cylindrical section at the first end of said first arm member said first semi-cylindrical section having an axis generally transverse to the elongate axis, and said first arm member further including a second semi-cylindrical section at the second end, said second semi-cylindrical section generally transverse to the elongate axis; and

    a senarate, unconnected second arm member including an elongate body member with a first end and a second end and having a generally elongate axis from the second arm member first end to the second arm member second end;

    a first semi-cylindrical section at the first end of the second arm member generally the same size as the first semi-cylindrical section of the first arm member and also having a cylinder axis generally transverse to the second arm member elongate axis, and a second semi-cylindrical section at the second end of the second arm member and also having a cylinder axis generally transverse to the second arm member elongate axis,said first elongate member first cylindrical section and said second elongate member first cylindrical section generally identical in size;

    said first elongate member second cylindrical section and said second elongate member second cylindrical section generally identical in size and having a distinct size from the first cylindrical sections,said first cylindrical sections and said second cylindrical sections each projecting axially uniformly from the first and second arm member to form a generally cylindrical locking ring engagement element;

    said first and second separate arm members each comprising a substantially straight elongate axis and comprising substantially mirror images of each other with said cylindrical sections projecting from said arms in the same direction.
