Does anyone know where to get a steel fuel line for a series 2 D-17? Or does anyone have a good used one they want to sell? I searched on line and I see them for a bunch of other models, but not D-17.

Why not use steel brake line, bend to suit, with proper pipe connectors?

I used a soft copper tubing so you can hand form it from Napa. Then used compression fittings to attach both ends. Looks nice imo

Steel is harder to work with but better to use in this application.  Copper does not stand up well with the vibration.

Compression fittings.
I have serviced a lot oil fired furnaces over the years. They use 3/8" soft copper to feed fuel oil from tank to gun, then 1/4 or 1/8" soft copper from pump to nozzle. 
I have found that using compression fittings with ferrels have a tendency to leak after they have been taken apart a couple of times.
Flare fittings hold up much better.
