The illustration shows three wires a 12v ign to ign terminal on gauge, Engine GND to GND terminal on gauge, and Temp/Press sender to sender terminal on gauge. It only shows one wire from the sender to the gauge, and the sender has only one terminal, so where does the second wire come into the picture?
What am I missing?

Who's the manufacturer of the gauge(s)? I'd give them a call. Sounds like a typo.... or there's something we're missing.
Unless.... because it's a Temp/Press gauge, they assume there's 2 connections at the sensor itself and the twin-conductor wire connects to those two, then come together at the sensor connection at the gauge.
The meter should have two lines,te 12volt from ing.,and theother line grounds through the sensor on the engine block. The meter is in line that way , and shows the readings as the water,or oil temps change. so only two lines are needed.
I called Auto meter and they said, a single 18g wire from the sender to the gauge will be sufficient. Also, the ground wire need not be close to the sensor as per instructions, any engine/batt ground will work.
The only time a twin conductor (speaker) wire is required is for a fuel gauge sender installation.
