The Tubing cutter that worked on the Copper Tubing will cut the Steel Tubing of the Fuel Lines with no problems. You just need to take little bites when you tighten the Knob on the Tubing Cutter.

If it is physically a big tubing Cutter it might not be as easy to use.

The Small Tubing Cutter takes up about 4 square inches of space and are handy for tight areas.
