      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 .

It should say on the data plate on your engine, or check your owners manual, or go to Yamaha's web site. I wouldn't rely on an internet chat room for this piece of information.

If it's still in warranty I would run one of the 3 (Mercury, Johnson or Yamaha) oils (I guess, for that matter I would even if it wasn't under warranty, but that's me).

The minimum requirements are that it is TCW-3 rated at a minimum. Lots of people have had good luck with Amsoil injector oil as well.

It doesn't say on my yami engine, maybe I'm not looking at the right place.

Yamaha engines uses Yamaha oil brand, 2 strokes 2-M TCW-3, 4 strokes 4W.

I'm pretty sure Yamaha don't recommend just any TCW-3 oil in their engines - so they can keep their money...LOL's.
