  1. Edzacery Chris, it's a smoke and mirrors show that is doing more damage than good, but we can't go political here!
  2. I don't care what it says on their pump. Prior to this new mandate that everything has to have renewable fuel in it I bought regular at Shell for misc items in the yard while I was also getting premium for my old cars. That regular damn near destroyed my 3 year old Kubota mower. As you can see further up in this thread I know full well how to test for Ethanol, the regular I got had about 21% in it !
  3. Be careful going to lower grades "just because everything now has ethanol". Shell's regular is the worst for ethanol percentage, or at least it was, as to get the 10% average mandated previously across their sales (and having none in their premium) the regular can and will have over 20% ethanol in it. Damn near destroyed my Kubota riding mower running it after it softened the float needle seat so much it buggered it up and filled the entire engine with fuel.
  4. Sounds abought right with the 72 cent Canadian dollar. 30 x .72....
  5. Almost as fun as watching boats go "down the hill" after coming out of the Marine Rail heading for Port Severn.
  6. Well... I made certain my 8 cans of Premium from CTC Midland were corn free on Friday before putting them in my cars ! It's as easy as putting an inch of water in a jar, marking the level and topping with gas. If the "water line" moves up it has ethanol in it.
  7. Good thing CO Bruce Ward retired... he'd have nothing to hassle Georgian Bay Musky fisherman with anymore..
  8. There's still hope, it all depends how you program them...
  9. Guys a push over.. just offer him a few quick fish....
  10. The fishing hole in Alberta is out of stock... my go to to save the tax!
  11. Mine was my thoughts on going electric... LOL
  12. Why would you... They already knew you had A gun by the fact you had to obtain a possession licence or PAL prior to the registry coming about..... so you then registered ONE! In my case the old family Cooey 22. And that's all I have.....
  13. Transport Canada.. per Terry's link above! DO NOT get scammed into using any other avenue or paying for it...
  14. He needs to save funds for bungee cords! Only time I seem to wear my one piece floater anymore is to ride the tractor blowing snow!
  15. Just make sure they don't try to sell you rotors Lew...
  16. Nobody is building boats from 2024 Anodized aluminum. The hull is most likely 5052-H36 or 6061-T6 and they're not anodized... but can be as an after process.
  17. I lower the tongue all the way down to the floor with it sitting on my trolley jack, put the stands under the back and then lift the tongue back up to get the tires clear of the ground and crank the tongue jack down to hold for the winter.. remove trolley jack.
  18. You need either a card or a renters check list filled out and signed by the renting outfit. Note that many lodges and resorts will no longer do the renters check list due to the liability it alludes to. I can state 100% that you need a boaters card at Manitoulin Resort.
  19. Inspect your engine fuel filter. Hose falling apart will clog it, but I can't see anything getting through it. My Lund/275 Verado/9.9 kicker is 15 years old now and no intention of changing any hoses for the same "No" answers....
  20. Is it leaking? Is it sucking air? Is the fuel hose hard and no longer pliable? Is the bulb hard or can you still squeeze the bulb just fine to prime? If the answer is No, No, No and No I can prime it just fine, then you are wasting your money and time.
  21. Well seeing there's no "registry" anymore, I guess it's time that I returned this gun that I borrowed from my Son...
  22. Winter access... be VERY aware of the current in most of the Honey Harbour area channels and most have no safe ice. ASK ASK ASK questions...
  23. Well I can promise you that the outlay of the lake hasn't changed!
