      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.

if not used correctly,

That can be said for ANY product. You can't really knock a product that dosen't work right when not used right.

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.

    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
