    Yes, yes and yes. Just be sure to bleed off the pressure before messing around with the fuel system..

    yeah its safe. Just check to make sure its tight enough and not leaking if you're gonna run the engine for a long time with the gauge hooked up. I've made some dangerously big gas puddles under cars because my gauge wasn't tight enough. Luckily no big fires!!

    If your mounting a perm. guage in the cabin, make sure you mount a sending unit and run the wires into the cabin to a guage, do not run a hardline into the cabin.
