At 30K they came off easily.
At 60K it took a utility knife and phone call to the wife to pick up some fuel line on the way home.

For the upcoming 90K service I'm making sure I have a few feet of fuel line on hand.

A little squirt of WD-40, and a small set of vice grips, cushioned by a rag works well for me. Squeeze the vice grips down (not too tight) and rotate back and forth to break the hose loose. Then just yank 'em off with your hands.

twist lines with pliers, then pull off.

put some sort of white lith/lube on new filter tubes.

then buy these.

There's enough extra to be able to cut it off at least once.

I use pliers to twist & break it loose then pull off.

Yep. A new length of hose is what, 30 cents?

I didn't want to find out what bending the crap it attached to was going to set me back -- and the fuel filter was being replaced, anyway.

Oh yeah, and don't cheap out and try and blow gas out of the filter.
