Where I go, a F-150 or Tundra is too big. I don't need all that weight and bulk, the size of my Tacoma is perfect for what I need to have.

I have a 2016 tacoma and I have fueled up through out baja with zero issues. Like you outlined..use some common sense when selecting where to fuel up. I also carry 2 jerry fuel cans with me to avoid having to fuel up in less than optimal locations.

Thanks for your experience, Bluto. May take the new Taco, with usual fuel cans and perhaps a MR Funnel filter for backup.
A bit uncertain about all the new gadgets, compared to old 01 Taco, with 5spd manual & real levers on transfer case.
You may note on BN that gov is closing some barrel gas sales- taxes ?
Pic, if it posts, is taking the "shortcut" back from Baja via El Fuerte to Copper Canyon. Not a place to have glitches. The route is not recommended nowadays, per Mexican friends in Sinaloa.
