Diesel Now Available Gonzaga Bay


Heads up, I passed through Gonzaga Bay a few weeks ago, and they added a diesel pump at the gas station, which is now a Philips 66. Gotta love free enterprise! :coolup:

Correction, Union 76. We got there late, and the camped in the parking lot because we were almost out of gas. The attendant came to see what we were up to, and sold us gas at 10:00 PM. I am guessing it was the free enterprise thing. We did give him a nice tip and headed to San Felipe.

Yes, the one and only, km.147. Last year it had both Pemex and 76 logos.

Diesel pump has been there for years. Glad it is finally working.

FYI -- the diesel pumps are in back, not visible as you drive by. They were pumping at least as long ago as last October. Air is also available at the back pumps but you may need to ask the attendant to turn the compressor on.
