      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Vent slighty opened for me. I have a similar setup. Make sure the vent isn't too loose. My cap came off before while driving and gas went every where in the back of the boat. That sucked!

The vent, I leave closed only during storage. just before leaving i will barely crack it open and during use I also leave it cracked open. But when I get home and park it in the garage I close it.

I usually would have 5 to 6 gallons in the 6.6 gallon can. I measure oil for 5 gallons at a time and add 5 gallons of gas...

But thankfully this year I switched to a four stroke motor, and I dont have to worry anymore about oil mixing.

You're not doing anything wrong. The hose is also pressurized because of the primer bulb. So when you hook it up to the motor or the tank it will sometimes releave the pressure and out comes some gasoline.
