Unless you're trying to get a critical exact measurement the "ground" on the cig lighter or bolts on the body are fine.
I have used atleast 3 diffrent bolts located around the drivers side knee area behind the trim on a few diffrent cars.
If you had to absolutely have to know the exact condition of the charging system +-0.001v you'd need a better gauge & a deticated set of wires to the battery... that would be overkill...

this should be in the "Electrical Forum"
