Q: What gauge wire should I use?
A: Please see below:

Automotive Electrical Wire Information
To select the correct gauge, first determine the amperage the circuit will carry, and then measure the length of wire in the circuit including the return ground wire. Find nearest amperage value in chart 2 and read across to the appropriate length column. This is the correct gauge. For a 6 volt system, use a wire 2 sizes larger than required for a 12 volt system.
