Just wondering ????????
Do the US boarder patrol allow you to bring back fuel cans back with Mexican fuel?I fill the truck before I leave Mexico but never fill the Jerry cans with fuel because I am afraid they might take it from me when I cross back to the USA. I know if was red gas , then I would get myself in big trouble .
rocmoc , have you ever brought back fuel back from Mexico to the USA ?
Is it legal ?

Fill your cans, you won't have any problems. The limit is in excess of 200 gals. I go over and fill my tanks, 90 gals, on my Dodge Ram and return home. The agents have to feel assured that the fuel is for personal use or you will not be able to keep it. I have never had any problems as my fuel if for personal use only. I will be renewing my Mexican Insurance in April and start making my monthly trip across the border again. BUT we also do other shopping, have lunch at a favorite Nogales restaurant, fuel up and return. Nogales local businesses are hurting and can use the dollars/pesos.
Shucks, the states of Chihuahua and Sonora together are about as big as England. Going from Nogales to Cancun would be like driving from London to Rome.
They tax the heck out of everything in Europe. That's why California's economy is darned near as big as France's. Gasoline? Hah! Try five bucks for a cup of awful coffee, three hundred dollars for a flea-farm grade hotel room, and twenty dollars to park all day.
If Mexico were to raise fuel prices to five dollars gal / eqvt, ten million people would be out of a job. Pemex would earn half of what it does now, and the petro haters in the USA would shout in glee. "Mexico is soooooooo greeeeeeeen! They are smarter than we are!"
Thank you rocmoc ,
I just want to pass Why AZ and be able to use my 17 gallons in the fuel cans to get me to the next filling station . That alone will save me about $50.00 .
Happy Trails ,
