oil guage as fuel pressure???

I have a 0-100 psi auto meter oil pressure gauge. Can i use it to test fuel pressure? Would diesel harm it? Wont do it more than say 10 minutes?
pressure is pressure, right?

for 15 dollars you can buy a small 1 5.8 gauge from your local speed shop. i wouldnt run it for long periods of time but they are great for testing. i have 2 of them and they work great
