      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 .

Looking at replacing our family vehicle and noticed that one of the features listed was that it met California emission standards. This got me to wondering. How does this effect fuel economy of the vehicle?

What kind of vehicle is it bob?

I would not be concerned so much with the mileage but I would be concerned about the extra labor charges due to the vehicle being California equipped. Not to mention all of the extra anti pollution parts that can fail.

Ditto on what Jer just said.

"California Emission Standards" means more stuff, which could equal into possibly more repair dollars in the future.

I do not think mileage is effected all that much, but I am sure a MPG or two. Federal emissions and State emissions standards do not take MPG’s into consideration. It all about the hydrocarbon totals coming out of the tail pipe.

It's a pre-owned vehicle and yeah when you consider that it is an Expedition I can see where mileage shouldn't be all that big a deal. Just wondering how this...ahem..."feature" could effect us down the road.

Thanks for the input.

Most of the time the difference from Fed to Cal emmisions on the Fords are different converters, and a different program in the computer. I have heard that the Cal emmisions cause a little less economy, but I cant confirm that myself! I wouldnt walk away from a good deal beacause of Cal emmisions, but I would pick one of the same deal!
