95 ZJ fuel line removal & Oil filter removal

Ok so I'm working on the ZJ I bought a couple of weeks ago, and I've run into two little hold ups. First I'm trying to disconnect the fuel line from the fuel rail, but it turns out that I'm supposed to have some magic little tool for this? Is there a way to get the fuel line off without the fuel line disconnect tool? Is this something I can find at Autozone (they're closed right now or I would check)? Also whoever put the last oil filter on either way over tightened it, or didn't lubricate the gasket because that sucker is not coming off . Any ideas on how to remove a seized oil filter? Thanks for the help guys.
EDIT: 1995 ZJ 4.0L 4WD

You should be able to find the tool at a parts store. Why are you removing it?

Large screwdriver stuck thru it and turn. Messy but works

changing the head so I need to get the intake manifold off. I.E. taking off the fuel rail. Thanks for the help. I'll see if I can find an oil filter wrench, otherwise I'll look into large screw drivers

No need to remove the rail.

Just unbolt the rail from the intake, unplug the electrical connectors on the injectors.

You can pull the injectors and rail out as one unit.

Entire rail will move out of the way so you can remove everything else.

Oil the o-rings just a bit, line them back up and pop them back in.

All with the fuel line still attached.

Done it several times now.

I used the cap to a Dennison "Marks A-Lot" marker. Cut the cap in half, take the half (without the closed end) and cut it in half length wise. Use tape on one side to keep halves together. Place over fuel rail pipe in front of connector. Push fuel line connector towards fuel rail while pushing tool towards connector, then pull off fuel line connector. Worked for me in just a few seconds.
