Make one!Go to Home Depot and Buy a piece of PVC in the same diameter.Get your little Ban Saw or what ever and notch the teeth in your self.Leave it tall enough to put a breaker Bar or some thing to turn it and your set! :kaz:

6 inch?..good luck!
that might be special order pipe at most hardware stores, if it is anything like rigid pipe most stores will only stock up to 4 inch.

You might want to look around at mechanic tool shops. I know that several of the auto OEMs use the mason jar lid on their tanks. Ford for one...

You wouldnt believe the tools you can make to replace the 'HD Special' tools. Where theres a will theres a way.

what are you trying to do when you get it off? and do you know how to do it properly? if not you could damage (kink) the plastic fuel lines. also care must be take on reinstalling as a position tab/notch can be damaged too.

I decided to take a second look in home depot's pipe section. I found apiece of 5 and a half inch (reducer i think). I took a shot and fabbed a tool in 15 minutes. If anybody is in a similar pickle do not order $100 tool. It was abreeze to make! Thanks guys for the motivation.
