      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 .

Sea Foam is superior to Stabil. Stabil tends to get gummy after a short period of time.

I've used OMC's 2+4 and/or Stabil for many years and have yet to see either one gum up when used in the right amount.

I have no experience with Sea-Foam, I have seen a lot of other's good reports about it. Stabil I have seen good results personally. However, I have never seen anything about how long their protection lasts.

AMSOIL's Gasoline Stabilizer is rated to give you up to 18 months storage protection. I have left engines for 9 months with this that started on the first pull. More info: AMSOIL AST Gasoline Stabilizer

Stabil says 12 months with standard dose, double the dose= double the time. Even though I have not used it, I would also give Amsoils product an endorsement as well. They seem to exceed any manufactures recomendations with everything else they make. grin.gif

I used OMC's 2+4. My service manager that I deal with recommended this and said that is all they use when they winterize boats for anyone that brings them in. I have used stabil and seafoam and they work fine too. I don't think there is a right or wrong one. As long as you are using one you are doing the right thing. Make sure when you put it in your tank you run it long enough so that it gets cycle through the system. It should do with about 15 minutes. You can really smell the 2+4 or stabil when it has come through motor.

Heres a post with some more info on stabilizers from a couple months back.

Seafoam Question

I am a Seafoam guy myself. I have also heard good things about the amsoil product as well. I was going to contact stabil about how there product "stabilizes" fuel a few months back but like usually I haven't got around to it yet. I may have to do that in the morning.

They're two different products. Stabil is designed to stabilize fuel while Seafoam is a cleaner/solvent with stabilizing qualities.
