  2. “The problem is not exclusive to that area,” El Universal said, referring to the metropolitan area of Guadalajara, where some 2.5 million vehicles clog the streets. “[The vehicles of] millions of Mexicans currently consume gasoline and diesel with specifications that don’t meet the quality norms established by energy and environmental authorities.” Pemex was supposed to reduce the aromatics content of all gasoline it produces in Salamanca to 25% by the end of last year. But it sought an extension to the deadline until the refinery has “the necessary conditions and infrastructure to comply with the specification … for the metropolitan area of Guadalajara.”
  3. https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/guadalajara-motorists-stuck-with-poor-quality-gasoline-until-2025/?utm_source=The+Whole+Enchilada&utm_campaign=91477aab98-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN+The+Whole+Enchilada&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f17425060f-91477aab98-350176874 Gasoline sold by Pemex in Guadalajara, Jalisco, contains excessive levels of aromatics, base components of the fuel and a major contaminant. According to Mexican regulations, 25% of gasoline content should be aromatics – mixtures of chemicals such as benzene, toluene and xylene – but gas supplied to Pemex stations in Guadalajara from the state oil company’s refinery in Salamanca, Guanajuato, is up to 35% aromatics, according to a report by the newspaper El Universal.
  4. I strongly advise checking the actual vial/box the B-12 comes in, as I tried several pharmacies a few years ago and they were giving B-6 and calling it B12. Fortunately, I read things before I take them. YMMD, but this is Mexico.
  5. Why would anyone go to a doctor for anything if you can't trust what they tell you.?
  6. As much as this concept has been discussed here on this Board, I am really surprised there are still people that are not aware of the process or do not understand it. Go figure !
  7. Why would you pay that??? I pay zero fees, as most people lakeside do. If you pay those fees, either you have money to throw away, or you have not done your homework before coming here.
  8. Looks like a possible cheese "knockoff" or counterfeit cheese. Looks very similar, but it might not be the real thingy ! I doubt the real one would have a "typo".
  9. Safe to one person is not always the same to another. A LOT depends on your Common Sense. Lots of new people coming to Mexico don't have any.
  10. There is a tax that should be paid when you cross to the US side. That is one of the things you should declare. Failure to declare and found upon inspection will cause big problems. Your decision.
  11. He is playing with you. You are wasting your time with him.
  12. You make every effort to make this simple process extremely difficult. Just do what Mostly tells you and don't be such a cry baby. Just follow what he says to the letter. GEEZ, Louise !!!
  13. We like the Chapala American Legion for breakfast.
