1982 Cadillac factory mpg gauge

So I found a factory cadillac mpg gauge at the u pull it wrecking yard when I went to get an alternator to build a welder out of.

I had been previously successfull putting a factory fuel gauge from an early 80's ford crown vic into my 94 ranger thanks to a great writeup at the rangerstation website.

So I thought to myself "maybe I could make this one work on my 93 geo?"

On the way home remembered that geos are suzuki's not gmc. Dohh.

Would like to mess with it though, does anyone know what the different wires connect to on the back? the crown vic computer had like 20 coming out of it as well but you only needed like 5 to hook it up in the ranger.

Thanks again guys, will probably break down and buy an mpguino soon, but thought I'd fiddle with this if anyone knew where to find the wireing diagram for it.

About 10 years ago I ordered an "economy gage" from an auto parts store, it was just a vacuum gage. When I got the part the box was covered in dust.
Your post has me thinking if I could locate another one for my other cars
