Default Gauge electrical question

So I know very little about electrical, but have dabbled a bit, none the less.
If I put "luminescent" gauge faces on that need 12v, could I put a fuse in line of a wire that is connected to the old bulb connections? Also therefore not having to worry about a separate dimmer switch?
I read the gauges run on 13-4v, so what size fuse would I use if my idea is correct?

Any help is appreciated.

If you tap in there, it should already be fused. Car lighting is 12v.

^ this

Also fuse rating is dependent upon the current of the circuit not the voltage (i.e amps).
