This is a bit of an old post, but it doesn't look like there was a definitive answer and I was looking at the diagram for my '83 300Dturbo last night -- on mine, the gauge measures pressure, after the filter media, of the oil that goes for lubrication. So.. the more the merrier (unless your more is because of clogged nozzels).
