      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 .

Honda Extended Run Tank Setup

Recommended Posts

Looking for info on a simple extended run kit for my Honda 200i.  Anyone made their own that works?  And what you need to look out for during operation.

Thank you in advance for the input.

Take and look at the B.e.r.g.s extended run tank system. I bought a 6 gallon bergs system & I also made an extended run tank system.

What I found out was by the time I bought a marine tank, hose, extended run fuel cap, and a qwik connect coupler and fittings I had about has much into it has the b.e.r.g.s. system. 

if you want to do it super cheap, get an extended run tank fuel cap on the ama of the zon with the brass hose fitting. then get a cheap clear tube to put on it. then just use a regular gas can and put the hose in it.

Go to the bay and buy an aluminum cap for the generator, get a couple gas fittings and a tank and put a rubber gas hose between them. Don't try to make it fancy with primers,filters, quick connects, or anything else, those are just more spots for air/vacuum leaks. Also stay away from clear gas tube as it hardens up fast.    JMHO though

Thanks for all the info.  I did go on the bay and found this deal for under $30.  I plan on just sticking the hose into a 6 gallon tank.  Will that work as long as it is on the bottom?

It should work with the Honda. The Honda has a fuel pump so it will pull fuel to the Ginny out of the tank.

If you have a yamaha, champion, or other brand they are gravity fed and would need an extended run tank and hose you could gravity feed fuel from. 

Just a regular red gas can with the hose touching bottom is all you need with the Honda.

Use the cap that comes with the tank and put a fitting on it. There's too many factors that you can screw up with with just the hose in gas.

Thought more about modifying a tank and decided to get a proper one.  Thought I would share this pretty good deal I found on the web:
