Johan, The alternator and battery are connected together, so the voltage at each should be the same (if the wiring is in good shape!). The actual connection of the gauge depends on who installed it. I don't think Saab ever shipped cars with voltmeters from the factory, so there's no "standard" place to connect it. The best use of a voltmeter is to know how it behaves when everything is working OK. Then, you can detect a problem by noticing "unusual" readings.
