      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 .

I thought the mix for Amsoil was 33 cc for one gallon of gas. Just do the math on the back of the bottle, one ounce is 30cc, any pharmacy will give you a small measuring bottle if you need it to meausure out the exact amount of oil. I use Amsoil in my auger and everything else, it's so much easier than mixing all the different 32-1 and 40-1 etc.

My buddy ordered a brand new Strikemaster 224 that should be in anyday now. Since it is brand new would it be better to go 4 oz. with that first galllon of gas for a mix just for the break-in?

I would run the manufacturs oil the first tank or 2 just for warranty reasons but that is only my opinion.

Correct-- synthetic oils are not the greatest thing to use to break in a new engine. Run the first few tanks with conventional oil, then switch to amsoil.

So mix the oil as Amsoil says, 50-1 and ignore what the owners manuals say to mix at ? Just want to be sure.

I sent a email to Amsoil Tech support and asked which of their products to use in my auger and other two strokes.

Here is their reply :

Thank youfor contacting AMSOIL with your concerns.

Inresponse to your inquiry, the suggested product is AMSOIL Saber ProfessionalSynthetic 100:1 Pre-Mix 2 Cycle Oil (ATP). The 100:1 ratio (1.5 ounces pergallon) should be used regardless of the OEM recommendations, as this is ahighly concentrated product.

Thank youagain for the opportunity to respond to your concerns. As always, please feelfree to contact us again if we can be of further assistance.

Sincerely,

Jim Van

Amsoil is the only oil I use in my truck, car, harley, 4 wheeler, chainsaw, lawnmower, etc. I think it is great. Ya I sell it too but for my cost to friends.

I fired my first tank of Amsoil yesterday in my SMLM-6 auger and I choked her to get her going pulled like 5 times and it popped so I through the lever forward to shut off the choke and she fired right up. I'm wondering if I'll ever have to choke her ever again? Burned super clean and no visible black residue. Instantaneous throttle response! I'm impressed I went with 2 oz. of Amsoil Saber Professional to 1 gal. of gas my auger is 7 years old...

Thanks you guys for the tip. Can't wait to rip some holes.
