      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 .

I have heard of it, but I dont think additives will increase your milage much if at all. Your best bet is tire inflation, tune up, and slow down, slower take offs. These few things will save you alot more then anything that comes from a bottle, in my opinion!

I just got done taking a close hard look at their site, and have come to the conclusion that is is snake oil. If you don't know what I mean by the term "snake oil", years ago there were traveling medicine shows where unscrupulous salesmen would put on an extravagent show extolling the benefits of any number of liquids and powders and such. One of the more popular products was Snake Oil. They would use "testimonials", lofty claims, and pummel people with windmilling nonsense. A lot of the times the products they would try to sell are now known to be rather hazardous. At any rate, they would put on a long yet entertaining show, and at the end would ask who would want some. People would clamor for the product, basically "under the ether" (a sales slang-I used to sell cars and one of the things I was taught was to "hit 'em before the ether wears off"), and would pay outragous prices for stuff they later found was worthless. Just be wary, as you already are in asking. There's an old saying that goes "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".

Agreed, Snake Oil. I'm pretty sure looking at the site would not change my mind as well.

Driving habits will make a bigger difference than anything you can put in the tank. A good example is our minivan. I'm not picking on my wife but she drives it like she just robbed a bank and has 13 highway patrol chasing her. According to the mileage calculator she averages 16 - 18. I can drive it and average 21-23.

    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
