      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 .

Fuel filter for Optimax??

Recommended Posts

do you feel it is important to run an external inline fuel filter for your opti's? i was wonsering how important it is, and if i sould put it on before winter to collect water that may accumulate over the winter? of course i will do all the other winterizing like stabile and such. what are your thoughts?

I run the clear plastic inline filters made by Tempo on every outboard, on the fuel line. All my motors have filters under the hood however I prefer an inline in addition. Don't have to pull the filter on the motor near as often either and risk breaking the plastic parts.

True DKF, but those inline plastic filters do nothing for water in the fuel...

Replying to the filter part. There isn't really a good way to remove water from gas other than making it able to burn.(Nox-Ice, Heet and other water remover) If your worried about water over the winter, add some water remover before you store the boat and mix it in good. I always run Stabil in my boats all season long. Want to try the marine Stabil as soon as I can find it.

Isn't that what Fuel Water Filters / Seperators do?

Your right, had a brain fart. I don't want the bulk and expense of seperator, water remover is easier and cheaper. Thought he was talking about a filter not a seperator.

So what is the marine stabil supposed to do more than the regular stabil?

Extra corrosion inhibitors and system cleaners over the red stabil. Supposed to protect parts better from ethanol and moisture. I'd post a link but it would get deleted.
