I don't like the scissor kind of tool, I prefer those white plastic ring looking ones. But, either way, make sure that the specialtity tool is fully seated in the fitting. It may feel like it's in, but it is the tool hitting the spring. The fitting is held together by a spring in the female end that slips over a collar on the male end. The tool must be fully seated to expand the spring to get it over the bump on the male connector. After that, make sure you pull straight on the female end of the fitting, and it should pop out. It may feel like it's fully seated, but continue to push the tool straight into the fitting, and you'll feel it slid under the spring.

The scissor type of specialtity tool doesn't work as well in my opinion because the hinges on them have some play in them, causing one side to not be prefectly straight with the fitting. This causes the fuel fitting to drag some or catch on the tool, making it more difficult to remove.
