Not sure what you're describing. The gauges I recommend can just be bought at a 
hardware store. They don't have to be rated for fuel or anything special. A 30-
50 psi water pressure gauge is perfect. Just add a pipe nipple and some 5/16" 
hose and you're all set.

Do you have a URL to a photo on the web of the kind of thing you're describing?
