Safari, which way you wire it depends on what type of gauge you have (+ & - or just +) and what the scale is.
IMHO, if you are using a battery changeover switch, the most useful place to put it would be in the common connection to the battery switch ie. existing switch common wire to guage, new wire from gauge to switch.
I hope this helps.
