'StuckSucks' Reports: Puertecitos Pemex Closed!


Jim (aka 'StuckSucks') is equipped with a Garmin/ DeLorme inReach device...

We exchange data during our Baja trips... and just now, Jim texted me that the Pemex in Puertecitos is closed, pumps wrapped in cardboard. He messaged me from the turquoise mine road, Km. 176 south of Gonzaga.

I think I've only seen it open one time that I can remember. Never wanted to count on it but it would have been a nice spot to stretch the mileage.

About five years ago, I pulled up to the station, but there was nobody there. I saw a couple of people working on a boat near there, asked them when the station would open, and one of them dropped what they were doing and went to get a guy to open up!

In Punta Prieta, gas is sold at the store on the north side of town.

The next Pemex station is Villa Jesus María.

David,

There are always 2 or 3 guys at the LA bay turnoff selling gas in plain sight. Signs and everything!

Yes, I know... I was adding another location I have bought gas at (very late at night, too).

The only ones we count on being open are San Felipe and Guerrero Negro. Every thing else is iffy.

Even at BOLA make sure you get it when you arrive and don't wait until you leave.

Bought gas from a pump like that on a trip to Laguna Hanson. I don't remember where it was but it was in the early 90's.

In addition to the places mentioned above, does anyone know if gas is sold by the barrel or otherwise in Santa Rosaliíta (Santa Rosalillita
)?

I like the old-timey "visible" gas pumps -- these were not conducive to cheating by seller. I think pemex was unhappy with visible/graduated bowls on pumps, so they invented the "cheater" pump that dispense ISC liters (International Organization for Cheating) as opposed to ISO liters (International Organization for Standardization)

I bought 5 gallons there in 2017. It is sold out of the shed behind the market. As at other places that sell gas independently, you just need to ask locals, it usually won't be advertised, and it should be for emergency if you can't get to a Pemex station. It will cost about a dollar or more per gallon over the Pemex price.
