      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 .

Full Throttle Fuel Treatment

Recommended Posts

My mechanic (local reputable dealer) recommended that I use Full Throttle brand fuel treatment last year. I've had to take in my 4-stroke Honda twice already this year with Carb issues. Used to use Stabil (which was recommended by the guy that sold me my boat at the same dealer). Anyone have any experience with Full Throttle?

I have used Full Throttle in my 90 Honda tiller for three years without issue! Each winter with Full Throttle I have not run the motor out of gas or drained the carbs. I must say during the summer I use a can of sea foam per tank of fuel.

I had a 90 HP 2 stoke Merc that had issues only while I had it on the water. I brought it in to 2 different reputable mechanics that couldn't find anything wrong. Both ran it in tank and dyno without problems. I take it out and it still had problems occasionally. (Felt like one cylinder would drop out (1/2 power intermittently, then jolt back to full, without any real pattern, certain RPM or load).

2nd place suggested running Full Throttle through next tank. Boat never missed a beat again!!??? I sold the boat a month later, even let buyer take it out for a day. No issues again. Never found what problem was, but likely was "bad" gas and Stabil from when I put in storage the fall before.

I continue to use Full Throttle in new boat. I've heard and seen issues with Stabil, if not used correctly, it seems to "gum" things up and cause problems. Not sure why, as I'm no expert in this area, just an observation.

Good point. Poorly worded. Just my experience with Stabil. The Stabil may have also been old (2 yr shelf life)along with not filling up with gas from a busy station, so it was my bad to start with. Thanks for the "Hey there,...."

Bottom line, I believe the Full Throttle cleared things up in by motor as it ran flawless after using it. No expert, just observations.

One thing you might be interested in doing is having your dealer install a water/fuel separator/filter between your gas tank and your engine. This will help clear up a lot of the bad gas that you may get and get the water/junk out of it before it hits your $$$$$ motor. It is probably cheaper than your trip to the mechanic.

So far so good after getting it back this last time. I'm going to sure I always have fresh Full Throttle and fresh non-ethanol premium from a place by my house.

Just out of curiosity, how often is a person suppose to change out the seperator/filter? is this a yearly thing or when you start to notice performance issues?

Generally, once a year unless you have problems.
