I seriously doubt they are cheating. They get checked all the time by the state and they would have a million complaints in no time if they did it that blatently. Having said that, the equipment is mechanical and can break, but I have never heard of it. My dad owns a gas station and every once in awhile someone will get all bent outta shape about this until they find out that there tank is actually bigger than they thought. His meters have never been off, not even once. In reality, it just doesnt happen very often.

A lot of what you think are 5 gal cans are actually 6.

Might want to check that.

Aren't all boat tanks (standard portable, I know there are some 9 and 11) either 6 or 3 gallon? I.e. the normal steel or plastic that see all the time are 6 gallon. Aren't they? I know the plastic gas cans for storing in garage or getting for mowers are often 5 gallon.

All "5 gallon cans" I've ever had for my motors actually held 6 gallons. They allow room for oil and expansion.

    • The Schrillary reich didnt compromise Bernie? And when hasnt the biased media compromised an election in recent memory? Nick is a hack and consistently posts 2nd grade propaganda, hes sold out to the party. They've been exposed and are resorting to extremes.  They went all in with obama and got called, he had far more to do with the outcome of the elections than anything  leaked by anyone.  Now its the fake blame game, humorous to say the least.   Snowflake butthurt apparently leads to desperation.
    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
