      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 .

Ok-I give up, Whats my fuel/oil ratio?

Recommended Posts

Between the ice auger, boat, weed whipper, edger-I've forgotten what gets what- I need to know the fuel to oil ratio for a 20 year old Mercury 20HP outboard. Thought it was 50:1, but cheaper to ask now than ruin the motor.

Thanks-

I would also suggest amsoil sabre outboard. I started using it last year in my 15 HP mariner @ 100 to 1 and the smoke is gone! Runs like a top too.

I have an early 80's evinrude that runs awesome always has, but it does smoke quite a bit. I mix it 50-1, I wonder if the amsoil sabre outboard would do me any good and if I would hurt anything mixing it any leaner with the amsoil.

You can safely use the AMSOIL Saber Outboard at the lean 100-1 mix ratio in a stock pre-mix outboard and AMSOIL gives you the lubricant guarantee at the 100-1. But if you choose to run it richer, just being unconfortable that lean, start richer. Even at 50-1 it should be nearly smokeless. Then adjust to leaner in steps as you feel confortable with it.

Or, if you want to stick strictly to the 50-1 ratio, use the HP Injector as a premix at 50-1.

AMSOIL's di-esther based synthetic two-cycle oils burn away clean leaving no carbon, ash or other residue behind.

Not sure about Merc but my '88 Johnson 25 had a sticker on it that said 100:1. It also had an 'Accumix' tank built in the main tank. The mechanic told me to rip the 100:1 sticker off and run 50:1. I tried the 100:1 ratio with synthetic pre-mix and didn't notice a difference. Don't feel it's worth the risk. If you've ever taken apart a 2 stroke engine, you know how tender the bearings are. The extra ounce of oil doesn't hurt anything.

My weedeater, chainsaw, and auger, all run on 32:1.

HUGE TIP: Look for the non-oxygenated fuel!!!!

My two cents.
