By the time I returned to San Carlos, I only had a quarter tank of fuel. I headed to the Pemex gas station and asked for 300 pesos’ worth of fuel just to get an idea of what a fill would be. 300 pesos got me to the half mark, which means that a full tank would be 1,200 pesos or 100CAD. OMG. An expensive tank of fuel in Canada is 95CAD, so Mexican gas is MORE expensive than Canadian! How come no one warned me about this???!!! I am going to have to take out more cash for sure as I way under budgeted for fuel. 🙁
Before anyone says anything, I am aware of the scam where the pump doesn’t get zeroed out and parked so that I could watch the screen. The attendant even pointed to the screen and said ‘cero’ (zero) before starting. I gave him five pesos for the service.
