      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 .

How to siphon gas? Not stealing, just moving!

Recommended Posts

the best way is just take a hose preferably clear so you can see the gas comming..put the hose in the tank suck in it untill the gas is about a foot away from your mouth them put it in the gas can make sure the can is signeficantly lower than the boats tank.. if you do get some in your mouth dont swallow!! you could use a primer bulb type deal..

Is there anyway you could easily remove the fuel line going to your outboard and use the primer bulb to get it started?

That might be one way.

Oh come on Sandmannd, tons of kids and punks suck gas out of cars everyday without a problem!! crazy No Not good. If it is a one time deal you can go to Fleet or any Auto store and they sell a very cheap siphon pump with hose for a few bucks!

Do not, I repeat do not swallow! I made the mistake of doing that in my younger years and lets just say I had my stomach pumped out. When and if the gas hits your mouth, you will swallow, must be a natural reaction. Primer bulb or a siphon pump is the way to go.

The problem with siphoning it out is that your probably not getting all the fuel in the tank, only what the hose can reach, and who knows where the hose is at inside your hidden tank.

Here's how I do it: take the fuel line off the motor, raise the tounge of the trailer up so the fuel goes to the back of the tank, put the fuel line in a gas can at a lower level than the boat fuel tank (on the ground). Then I use an air compressor to lightly shoot air into the vent (making sure the gas filler line is sealed) once the flow starts it will drain the tank completely.

You don't need the compressed air the whole time, just to get it started.

Pumping the primer ball may work as a substitute for the compressed air, I'm not sure.

Hoggs, For a permanant boat tank, take about 10' of clean hose and push as much of it down into the tank as you can. Put your thumb over the end off the hose and pull out it back out until you can reach your gas can on the ground and let 'er flow. Careful!!! when the gas can's full the gas will keep flowing, have a 2nd can very near to QUICKLY move the hose to. 20 years in the auto salvage biz... Ya just can't help but learn something grin.

STOP! READ THIS!

Use a very long piece of tube. The tube must be long enough to go all the way down to the fuel tank, out of the tank and below the level of the fluid, and then back up to your mouth. It's best if your standing. This makes it a 7-8 foot piece of tubing. When you see t he fuel come out of the tank and head to the ground, stop sucking and put your thumb over the end of the tube that was in your mouth. Now lower that end of the tube down and into your new container. The prime in the tube will carry the gas out and into your new container, once you take your thumb off of the tube.

Don';t screw around with the possibility of ingesting gasoline.
