Believe it or not, Clara had been pretty good this year with keeping the station open. She ran out maybe a week and a half ago and with the summer coming and most of the down vacating she will probably have a harder time keeping the tanks full until everyone returns in the winter. If the gates are open, they have gas. Juan takes his siesta from 1-3 so he closes the gates during that time. If you roll up during these hours and need gas, honk your horn or go up to the Puertecitos gate and ask for Juan and he usually will come running.

well that makes sense, ran dry a week and a half ago and covered the pumps a few days ago, maybe for the season?

That "Wayne" cardboard box in between the two black covered/out of service dispensers looks to me like a brand new dispenser inside. Wayne makes dispensers. Could the station be installing new dispensers soon? I doubt it, just speculating!!!!!!!

Hi Sredish,
Is there a way for you to share this file?

Thanks

Gonzaga Bay Pemex is also closed. As of late early Feb and late April. Don't rely on that one!

Interesting... it and Rancho Grande are owned by the Los Pinos Tomato people of San Quintín (who also own the new market and station at Cataviña... which is still not open, right?).

I bought gas there a week ago, it was alive and well.

The Gonzaga PEMEX has been open every time we’ve been by. Most recently last Thursday. I asked at the store in Puertecitos about the PEMEX station. They knew nothing!

Looking at the pictures, Puertecitos only has 2 pumps to my recollection. A 3rd box with a pump in it implies new pumps?
