Depending on the fitting (or lack thereof) on your gauge, you may need to pull the valve out of the end of your rail in order to take measurements. You need a special tool to do this, and need to put the gauge/hose on VERY securely to not have leaks. Otherwise, a fuel leak may caue an underhood fire.

The tool Scott is talking about is a Schrader valve core remover ... you can find them in bicycle repair kits, tire patch kits, etc.
