Can anyone tell me how to disconnect this style of fuel line quick-connect? I haven't encountered this particular type before. TIA. Peter

They are the easiest ones as no tools are required.
Push it together then squeeze the side release tabs and pull it off.

respectfully beg to differ.
There is a tool that makes this easier.
small nylon cup that has a slot along one edge.

place onto fuel line the push up into open end of fitting.this lifts the internal lugs up and away from the fuel line lip they have snugged around..

My experience with the plugs generally bad upon the fuel rail connections
- exposed to heat and no longer able to press down & off
And no real room for tool bush to slid up and into 'em.

Best suggestion is to keep working at it with some spray lubricant..
And keep fuel line pushed fully in between extraction attempts.
De pressurise fuel line by breakin an easier joint too.

Thanks for that, have ordered a set for the toolkit.

What's the suggested "easier joint" - at the filter?

Snap ring pliers work

I was able to disconnect the fuel line from the regulator by using snap ring pliers which I inserted into the connector while it was pushed all the way back from the regulator. I used the pliers to push out on the two smaller tabs and the fuel line came off easily. I also took the advice of Conglomerate and squirted some penetrating oil into the connector before I started.
