A good compression gauge goes to around 15 bar. Coolant is a tenth of that,
and brake lines ten times that. You simply can't build a gauge (unless it's
digital) that reads all applications with enough precision.
Quite apart from the idea of putting a fuel injection gauge (which gets pretty
damn soaked in fuel when you use it) into a brake fluid circuit.
The fluids in cars are pretty well mutually hostile. Keep 'em apart.
