The problem with using mains cable is the insulation does not have the same properties as automotive stuff such as oil and heat resistance.

Also the thin wall automotive comes in a few more colours...

You can also get away with using a cable of a lower rating than the fuse, as the fuses are quick to blow under fault and won't allow enough time for the cable to heat up and cause problems. As long as the cable is rated above the load you're putting on it you won't have any problems.
