These disconnects have a rubber o-ring which gets stuck. I'd say, use the tool and maybe give the connection a drop of penetrating oil and keep trying. Good luck, and don't spray yourself with fuel when it comes apart.
ive try that already it still wont come off
Best suggestion under the circumstances is to get it to a professional that does these several times a day. It's quick and easy for someone with a lift to get up there and remove it with some experience behind them that will keep the fuel line from getting fractured.

A fractured fuel line is a bad situation...so it's best to elect for the safe bet.
And -- use extreme care, because a stuck quick connect is far better than a broken quick connect!

Good luck!
