You are seriously better of going to an air-con service station, as they take out all the old stuff, then the system is cleaned and re-filled with r134a & oil, leak tested and pressure tested.
Here in the UK, you can buy the same can as you have for £38.00 or go to a service station and get it done properly for £45.00. So for an extra £7.00 its worth it.
Don't worry about the guage. Turn on the car. Turn on the ac and put it on the full setting. Hook up the hose and continually shake the can until it is empty. Wear gloves because the can will get very cold. Afterwards, drive the car with the air on and it should work. Are you sure that you have a car the takes r134a? If it is pre-1994 it will use freon.
