WD40 is better than nothing, but it is far from the best penetrating oil. Something like PB Blaster would be better.

I don't recall the sizes off hand, but they're not both the same, whatever they are.

Maybe I'm just lucky, but I've never had to replace the O-ring on any Fiero fuel line I've ever worked on. And there's been quite a few Fieros over the years!

I don't ever remember an O ring on the filter, but if there is one, it's already in the inlet or outlet of the filter. I doubt it since the lines are flare fittings. There is an O ring on the cap of the fuel rail, though. It's not really necessary. I've been running one of my cars for years without the metal cap on the valve. PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench might be a better choice than WD-40 for the rusted bolts. Each time you spray them, give them a light bump with a tool.

If you have the wrench to hold the nut on the end of the filter and the flare wrench for the line fitting, have them handy underneath the car.
Next, if you have an AC recharge kit, place the end of the recharge hose against the line fitting and give it a good 30 second shot of AC refrigerant. Quickly try to loosen the line nut.
Dry ice placed against the line fitting can also work if you don't have the AC kit.
