Default Which fuse to tap in to for 12v

Hey guys,

I'm no expert in wirering, but i need to tap a 12v wire (WIDEBAND GAUGE) in to the fuse box located under the driver seat. Which fuse would you connect your 12v Ign wire to?

Can I use the Radio 15A one?

Question 1: What device/accessory are you looking to run? (more specific the better)

Comment 1: If you are wiring up something that doesn't draw that much current, such as a radar detector or a Sat radio unit, then I'd suggest using a Add-a-Circuit device. What this does is piggyback off a fuse in your fusebox, then you run your power into the cord on the add-a-circuit. Similar to a fuse-tap, but much safer because it lets you have a separate fuse for each item. It also makes things much easier to uninstall, and you don't risk cutting the stock wiring of the car like you would with a vampire (crimp) tap.

Yeah, I've seen them at AutoZone and Advance Auto Parts. They run about 6-12 bucks. You can also order them online from many places. My 04 Impreza uses the "mini" size fuse. It made getting power for my radar detector that much easier to install and remove.
