Default how many gauges off one power source?

right now im running a 20amp fused wire directly from the ign harness to my wb02, and boost gauge to power them.

I just ordered a oil pressure, and egt gauge that i plan to use the same power source for. Can i just keep using the ign harness for power as long as i use the correctly rated fuse in-line?

Im pretty sure after i install these additional 2 gauges i will be done. I may get a fuel pressure gauge in the future though.

thanks in advance

If only gauges are on that circuit, a 20A fuse is way too much. Gauges don't draw a lot of current, when you have all of them installed a 5A fuse will be more than enough. Also it depends on whether you are running the illumination through that circuit, the lighting will draw more current than the gauges themselves.
