  1. The problem in the United States is the use of ethanol in the gasoline. By law the petroleum companies must use so much unless they can get a waver. In the states the ethanol is usually made from corn. At the time of the law, corn was a very low price and oil was getting scarce so they decided the adding ethanol usually 10% would be a good thing . Chillin is correct the problem is the carburetor. New cars have carburetor's that are designed to accommodate the ethanol. Your one cycle engines like for weed eaters, lawn mowers, chain saws, etc do not have carburetor that will accommodate the ethanol. The ethanol forms a varnish in the carburetor and they will soon cease to run. You can still buy gasoline in some station's without ethanol and I buy it for all my equipment and old tractors. My new truck I use the ethanol gasoline and so far no problems. Corn is at record prices now and there is sufficient oil so there is an effort to do away with the ethanol law. Once a law is on the book sometimes its hard to change it but there is a world wide shortage of corn and it is needed for food and feed.
  2. Does anyone know if you need a covid test to fly domestically in Mexico?
  3. In Chapala I have been getting a regular size hamburger on sesame bun with veggies and French fries for 60 pesos. The hamburger is good and the potato fresh fried. My total bill with coca cola was 83 pesos. It is located 2 or 3 stores East of Santander bank and is called the Black Kitchen. I have been paying double this price for hamburgers not nearly this good.
  4. In Oklahoma after a few cold nights and just before the first freeze my wife harvested all the tomatoes and made some great chow chow with the green ones. Frijoles, cornbread and chow chow is hard to beat on a cold winter day!
  5. I buy all my drugs in Jocotepec they are much cheaper there away from the gringo influence.
  6. I give up, $500 pesos for it now!

    I agree the only food value place at the mall is the Indian place. Their food is not bad and generous.
  8. Two weeks ago called Uber from Ajijic and they said $350 pesos to Guadalajara but they had no cars. We rode bus to Guadalajara and taxi back. Taxi was $500 pesos. Suspect you can get Uber from Guadalajara to Lake side but can only get one here if there happens to be one in the area.

    Went to Hacienda de Don Pedro today for quail and rabbit. They told me they could cook nothing as they were out of gas, also they had no rabbit. We went to eat at Linda's and had a good meal but Cocinart is still my favorite
  10. How long for air travel is the Antigen test good for?
  11. Does anyone know if the Telmex office in Ajijic is Open? If not, I would appreciate a phone number for the office. It appears they are double billing me for the service. Gracias for the help!
  12. I know of many foals raised by goats. It's easier to buy a goat with milk and let the foal nurse it. It does not take long for both to get use to idea. I knew one race horse who refused to travel anywhere unless mother goat was with it.
  13. In Oklahoma we cover the French fries with chili and cheese. Guaranteed not to prolong your life!
