In the car, for 110watt rigs, I tend to twist I think it is 6 or 4 gage, as that is what GE used to use on their cables ( I run commercial radios, usually). Btw, GE/macom/Harris, whatever they are called this week does NOT want you running the negative back to battery, and says to ground to chassis

On 50 watt rigs, or regular  ham rigs, I have a spool of Teflon 10 gage twisted pair with braid shield. Don't forget to tie the shield to chassis, and run direct back
