Shraeder valve Wrong guage?

I put a fuel preasure guage on the shraeder valve but--- It only shows 12 psi Got the guage at Graingers. Could this be a pressure guage but not a fuel pressure guage or would any pressure guage be ok. TIA

I checked the packing list and it says 100 psi pressure guage but does not say fuel pressure guage so I suppose I ordered wrong and have to get a fuel pressure guage. I don`t know if it makes a difference but guess it does. Truck runs good.

Try another gauge just to make sure.

Thanks guys, I have another ordered that`s a fuel pressure gauge rather than just pressure gauge. My truck runs too good to have 12 psi the pressure gauge was showing so I sent it back. Will let you know when the new one is installed w/pics.

maybe it was an air pressure gauge you originally got.
