Whqat would you use to cut the fuel line with? Would a big pair of tin snips work or will they just pinch the line. And what would be the best way not to get a face full of gas?

And what exactly is a compression fitting (need special tool)?

Sry for all the nOOb questions but im just a kid

Get a line cutter. Works for brake lines and fuel lines both. You just put it on, roll it around the line, tighten the cutter and repeat until you have a clean cut. I have one with and without a handle, and the one without is VERY handy for tight spots. Found it at one of many garage sales

The compression fitting just basically 2 crushable one time use metal (brass?) rings (correct me if I'm wrong on this, it'* been about 2 years), and a nut set that they fit in. When the nuts are tightened, the rings are compressed and form a seal/tight fit around the line. Just need wrenches.

I usually end up with a face full of gas, so I'd suggest doing a search if you really don't like the cologne. (I kinda like it on me, but not on my guys
