I always considered the term "Bundy tubing" as a universal phrase for the seamless tubing used on brakes and fuel lines. But when a co-worker went to NAPA a couple years ago to get me a couple rolls, even the 2 old counter guys had never heard the term.

Bundy tubing is a term that I have been familiar with for the last 50 years as a generally used term in the automotive world here in the UK.

Check out how it's made: It's made from flat steel and rolled into two laps of a circle and then sweated together. Mr Bundy (not Al Bundy) was quite clever.
