 Now much extra Outboard gas is allowed to crass the border?

Hmm, now that’s a question I’ve never heard anyone ask before.  I’m not a routine border crosser but I’ve only been asked about guns, fish and alcohol.

 

I’ve read my documents and haven’t seen anything relating to gas either.  If you don’t get an answer before the 16th I’ll ask for ya when I cross over!

So 25 or 30 years ago I remember them being sticklers on extra gas and we would have to pay duty on whatever they considered to be to be "extra".  To the best of my recollection that quit happening maybe 20 years ago.  These days we cross mainly at Baudette both summer and winter and are averaging between 3 and 8 5-6 gallon gas cans per trip and myself or any of my friends have never paid gas duty in the past 20 years.

I was told by an officer that they will allow what the officer deems to be  a reasonable amount for the trip. That was 3 years ago . Sounds like it is a discretion call on there part as apposed to a fixed amount .

I was camping up at leech last weekend and in the site next to me was a campground host.

He was a retired border guard. I remembered this post so I asked him about it.

His response was if you had more gas then you needed for your trip then they would start asking questions.

The biggest with him at the border was attitude from the people crossing.

We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.

 

I thought that was pretty good!

    • I have the Helix 7 Ice and there is no way you could pry that from my hands for a noisy spinning round dial thing. ( I was going to type flasher but I know what types of snarky GIF's would have been posted in reply to that. 
    • I’m glad Lavine is gone! With him on the team, wolves would’ve been in last place last year. He is NOT a winner! Chicago sucked last year! They suck this year! And they’re going to suck next year! I think Jimmy Butler would have stayed if we would have shipped off Wiggins. If anything, this trade should help reduce minutes for KAT and Gibson in a positive way.
    • Well, I’m only about 5 minutes into the next show, and I already know the older Judith will be more annoying than Carl was. Yep, show is back in the pits!
    • I think the trade sucks if they actually had the Heat's offer of Josh Richardson and a 1st round pick plus another player...even Richardson and the first round pick would be better then Saric, Covington, and a 2022 2nd!  Maybe I am off on this (Saric and Covington aren't the worst return) but looking back I wish they had stuck with Lavine, Markinen, and Dunn!  Oh well glad to put this behind us and start the healing process!!  hope Butler brings the 76ers and their "Process" down!! 😂  Go Wolves!!
    • My son was able to gain access by connecting it to his desktop. It required 12v power to drive it. Thanks.
    • UFFDA dats close!!!!!!!!!! we are close to the spring lake store iffin you go that way much!!!!!!
    • Not much to complain about so far, must be why its so quiet in here. From the games I am seeing we don't even look all that great yet but are finding ways to win and Dubs/parise/granlund have been amazing. Will need some depth to kick in to be any kind of real contender, and of course we need to find a way to actually score goals if we make the playoffs, it seems that is always the issue. 
    • Right there by Riley's.  Hopefully they stay locked up and the wind and temps behave.
    • well, it is a what have you done lately society, soooooooooo........... nope........my neck is fine!!!!!!!!!!! i may need to get it massaged by some of those new female hunter trainee's however!!!!!!!!😉  
    • For reference I do have the original Helix 5 and its just the basic unit so newer units may be better with interference.
