      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 .

Good idea to pre buy propane this year?

Recommended Posts

I was quoted 2.40(cash) and 2.40 (credit) per gallon to prebuy the amount we used last year in Bemidji area. Is anyone else going to pre buy this year?

Those are good prices and absolutely YES you should prebuy but it might be too late. I prebuy every year as well. $2.35, up .79 cents from last year We combine my tank and the neighbor's 3 tanks. Bulk rate and pay on the spot. Writing a $10,000 check is weird.

Just an FYI, around twelve years ago I prepaid at .65 a gallon.

We did not pre-buy this year frown I have every year, to price protect myself. The reason we did not pre-buy? 200 Gal minimum x $2.52= $500 Bucks

I just dont have $500 laying around, so I will be rolloin' the dice this winter.

All my money went into boat fuel cry

This is ridiculus mad

when I bought my cabin in 01 propane was $.089 per Gal

If you pre-buy and the price goes down, most companies will credit you the surplus. Prices are going down right wink

"We combine my tank and the neighbor's 3 tanks"

The 10 grand was the total for 3 homes and 1 Studio.

I'm heating 2100 sq ft with a propane 60,000 btu 90+ forced air furnace. That'll take around 1000 gallons. Couldn't do that if I wasn't insulated good. cool

I installed the unit myself along with all the duct work at a tune of $800. If I compare that to fuel oil or electric the unit paid for itself the first year. If and when I need a new heating system I'll be looking into alternatives.

Yeah I was really torqed when I found out my neighbor got his propane out of Roseau for 2.18 and I got laid down in Baudette for 2.52 mad why does it vary so much from gas suppliers. I also found out it is cheaper if you own your tank. I lease mine. Anybody know what a 500 gal tank costs?

Wow!!! You guys up north are paying dearly. I sent my deposit in here yesterday (in Ioway) to lock in 1400 gallons at $2.15/gallon and I thought that was a great pleanty. Seems like about 5 yers ago we were at 90 cents.

My parents have a manufactured home on the back 5 acres of my property.

This fall they're switching over to natural gas. It'll cost $1100 (unless they can get a deal because of being 70), but at $2.49 / gallon they were paying, they figure within 18-24 months they'll save that much.

That $2.49 was a pre-pay, contract rate.

Propane has come down some...but not enough to really give us a break for winter heating. Lets hope it starts to fall like gasoline prices!
