Download this app called gasgas and you can enter what kind of gas you need and it will show  you all of the gas stations.  You can see which ones have gas and those that do not.  good luck

Premium only but the wait was short

Gas apps have not been reliable, as of 8pm only Ajijic by Barco and Canacinta had gas, all others out

I agree. GasGas, if you click on an individual station, will show who and when updated the info. But I digress.

I could not find the gasgas app?

Sunday AM....      I walk most mornings leaving my house at 7:10 am.  This morning as I walked down Revolucion onto the lateral heading west I could see the Pemex in Ajijc was open an pumping gas.  I have not driven my car since Tuesday AM just waiting for this opportunity.  I reversed directions walked as fast as my 75+ year old body permitted back up the hill.  In the house I left on my old clothes and hiking boots grabbed by wallet and car keys and drove like a maniac back down Revolucion.  The line was still short and I joined it in front of the Telmex office.  Twenty minutes later I headed home with an almost full tank.  It pays to be in the right place at the right time.  Also, it did not hurt that it was a Sunday and the carretera at that time has little traffic.

This is an excellent app, however the only problem is that people don't update it, which timestamps the inputs.

A friend in Ajijic reported filling her tank this a.m. at that gas station. She took a chance, leaving her house at 7:45 and back in the door at 8:30. She said the vehicle in front of her got 800 pesos worth of gas so no more 500 pesos limit — at least then.

The Gasgas program is worthless.  Better to pay a puntero to hang out on the carretera with a cel phone. When he spots a pipa with a state police escort he can call you.  Follow the truck.  (No police escort...no gas)

Chapala had gas this morning. The line started in front of the gas station, went North to Soriana, around onto Pepe Guizar,south to Carranza then back to the Pemex.did not have enough gas to survive that line up so went home. This idiocy has got to end soon!!

The line in Ajijic was less than 25 minutes long last night (Saturday) between 7 pm and 9 pm. They were closing at 11. They were giving fill-ups, if asked for. Saw a Pemex truck heading West, while standing at the lights in front of Farm Guad, full, and coming back an hour later empty. Presume La Canacinta.

To my eye, this means less panic, because previously the lineup would have been through La Floresta.

Have not seen any in Riberas today (as of 1:30 pm Sunday).

We got gas after an hour and 40 min. wait out at the BP by La Canacinta.....not bad we thought....filled the tank.   About 8 pm as we drove along the carreterra, heading east a tanker passed us heading west.   Small lines too but still pumping at the west BP.

Computer Guy...   I asked for more than $500 but I was told no, only $500.    That was ok with me.  It was my first fill and I was ecstatic.  This was at 7:55 am

I was surprised they were allowing fills. I would guess they were slowing it down as it got later.
