Gas in Mexico is hit and miss. I'd bring a few bottles just in case, but don't add it unless you get some detonation (pinging). I've found that most of the PeMex stations are pretty reliable. It's the Mom & Pop "Mini-Supers" that are suspect...SC

Jcorni,
I ride my motorcycle and drive my truck (Ford V10) in Mexico regularly and their gas works well in both. I also get significantly better mileage when I use their gas. Their gas is not oxygenated, like California gas. More hydrocarbons, less air= more BTU's. Magnasin worked fine in my 2003 WR450F for thousands of miles. Premium is better, however. Here is a link for everything that you want to know about buying gas in Mexico http://www.rversonli...xicanFuels.html
