I have a 78 vert. Is the gas guage on a fuse? If so, can someone with a book tell me which one it is, counting from L - R. Thanks -

The fuel gauge runs off of the same source as the oil/alternator and turn signal arrow warning lights - and they all lead back to fuse number 12, which also powers the turn signals.

wiring diagram is at this link - look at track 47.

And the fuse chart page from a 78 owner's manual:
