Posting this for a friend. He was told it may be 20's era, and may be American or European. Note, it has a fuel pressure gauge, not fuel level. On the back side it has a pipe thread connection for the oil pressure and another identical connection for the fuel pressure. Any help is appreciated.

Not sure what it is from. I can tell you this, Before the Vacumm fuel pump came into use in the mid teens the fuel tanks on some cars had to be pressurized if the tank was below gravity feed to feed the carburetor. This was done with a hand pump initially, and then a small pump on the side of the engine would take over when the car was running to keep the tank at around 3 PSI. The gage cluster has an amp meter which would put it after 1913 and most likely before 1918 if automotive. It also may be Marine, or Airplane. Diesel engines also require "Fuel Pressure" to run and many had a Fuel Pressure gage giving a reading for the primary pump before the fuel entered the injection pump. Dandy Dave!
