RE: Diesel Fuel for newer diesels

I'm not a diesel user but I am an rver and an avid news follower. Here is an article from November 29th, 2019. PEMEX Looks to Suspend The New Norm For Clean Diesel. However, at the beginning of the year, a district court granted Pemex protection and suspended the forced entry of the new provision in most of Mexico. The suspension limited the mandatory distribution and sale of DUBA (ULSD) to 9 percent of the country, including Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey, as well as the northern border. A final court decision on the most widespread supply of DUBA has not yet been made, but court documents, reviewed by Reuters, show for the first time that Pemex is fighting in Mexican courts to suspend the rule indefinitely. Continuing to use high sulfur diesel could save Mexico money by limiting imports and extending the deadline for truck manufacturers to install DUBA compatible engines. However, it could add to the perception of a recession of the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador in the fulfillment of environmental commitments.

RE: Increase Mexican Fuel Prices

A lot depends on where you buy your fuel. Every Monday on the president's daily two-hour rant of which I watch everyone, there is a presentation from PROFECO (Mexico's BBB) that lists the stations with the highest and the lowest prices. This week, Costco Tabasco came in with a price of 17.96 per liter (Magna) and the highest was almost 23 pesos per liter (Magna). In many cases, to remain competitive, franchise owners are absorbing the cost. For those not familiar with PROFECO, apart from consumer complaints, they also list all products for sale in Mexico with the highest and lowest prices in the section of their website called, "Quien Es Quien". Very useful.

RE: CPAP and CBD oil

Like any border crossing or airport in the world, you are left to aduanal agent criteria and their lack of knowledge of national laws. Why take a risk when you could research and find that in Mexico, you can buy your CBD products locally. Not worth the risk or hassle.

RE: Central America trip

We now live in Mexico, and even today, while renewing our vehicle registration, it's all an adventure! Easy, but oh so different. We wouldn't want it to be the same, would we? Then we could just stay home and not enjoy the diversity of cultures, laws, and customs. Like everyone else, if you've got a good rubber, you've got the majority of what you need. The rest all seems to fall in place.

RE: CPAP and CBD oil

I just read several of the articles. It looks like yes, CBD is legal and available in Mexico. What is NOT legal is bringing it into the country. So the catch would be sourcing it here. It is definitely available on Mercado Libre, a version of eBay that works well here. It is also available on Amazon.mx. X2. COFEPRIS (Comisión Federal para la Protección contra Riesgos Sanitarios) regulates new drugs, use of marijuana and CBD products. They are slowly releasing permits for the sell of CBD related products. I am currently in San Miguel de Allende and there is a business here that specializes in CBD oils. So there are more around the country. I would investigate the COFEPRIS website or articles online, but you would have to do that in Spanish and then translate them if you are not fluent in Spanish.

RE: Central America trip

I don't disagree with any of the above, but one thing we carry now is a nylon strap. Sitting on a mountain pass at 2500 meters on a dangerous curve with no shoulder, it was a mess. A good samaritan stopped and handed us a nylon tow strap. A tractor-trailer came at us head on (I had no idea what he was doing) and stopped one meter from the front of the SUV. He hooked up the strap, backed up his semi and trailer on a true hairpin curve, and pulled us out of harm's way. The first thing I did when we got home was to buy a heavy-duty tow strap. BTW, the transito stopped a grocery store delivery truck, about 35 feet long, and told the driver they had no choice but to pull us to the next town for repairs. Gotta love this country.

RE: Great News, Pumping Real Diesel for 5 More Years

AMLO appeals to the poor and that is his target group as he knows he will win future votes. Part of his "high" acceptance rating is the simple fact that his party has the majority in the house and senate. By offering money and gifts to his voters he is keeping them happy. Eventually, the money will run out, and his followers will fall by the wayside. Like another famous president, he inherited a very strong economy including a strong and steady peso. As time goes on, that will begin to fail. His ability to manage the security issue is waining. More murders than ever and his "no confrontation" approach has become lackluster. He promised to reduce salaries for government workers. Hasn't happened. (senators and representatives received a $20,000 U.S. Christmas bonus. He auctioned off all of the government vehicles, armored Suburbans, etc. for 100 Million pesos, and now bought all new vehicles for 300 Million pesos. He promised lower fuel prices. Hasn't happened. He promised increased safety and security. Hasn't happened. He promised to reduce corruption. Hasn't happened. He promised to sell the presidential Dreamliner 787. Hasn't happened. Unfortunately, his voters are made up mostly of people who have no formal education (by choice) and indigenous groups that do not speak Spanish or very little and do not understand what all this means. I've been in San Miguel de Allende for two months helping out a sick friend and the gringos just don't grasp any of this because the news doesn't get to them in English. If they only knew what they were living in and what the future may hold for them as ex-pats.

RE: Great News, Pumping Real Diesel for 5 More Years

It is shameful that Mexico is polluting the environment. Moisheh C All because of a selfish president who wants to make his mark and attempt to prove to others that he was right. He will bankrupt the country in his desire to revive PEMEX. Why would you revive such a dinosaur when the world is moving towards sustainable energy? Why spend over 200 billion dollars on something that won't be of use in 20 year? Doomed, but I guess other North American countries feel the same.

RE: Great News, Pumping Real Diesel for 5 More Years

The link is in the first post It lists the states where ulsd will be sold by Pemex. Amlo had to change the date for availability as they cannot produce very much. Amlo is upset as they lose money on imported fuel. He is battling with Pemex. CRE (The Regulatory Energy Commission)Extends The Deadline For Pemex To Reduce Sulfur In Diesel The article is in Spanish. Again, our messiah president has delayed another action until he completes his term in 2025 so that he is free of any criticism. His CRE, which has no energy expert on the board (remember my earlier post about the CRE board selection where the winning candidate was asked what a cell was, referring to solar energy and he raised his cellphone in the air) has agreed to his decision. Our president is determined to undermine any previous decision made by any previous administration. In some bizarre way, one would get the impression that there is a plot against North America based on the three leaders involved and the decision they are making.

RE: Having an RV in Mexico when residente permanente

We took our Mexican plated rv into Canada. We also checked to see if we wanted to sell it in Texas if we could replate it since it was originally from there. $180. My ex-boss took her VW Jetta to San Diego where, because it meets EPA standards, she was able to import it and plate in California. So much to know and so hard to find the information sometimes.

RE: Becoming a resident gets a lot harder after NY's

"If you intend to apply for permanent residency you will need to demonstrate an income per month over the past six months of at least 500 days’ worth of minimum wage or have savings equivalent amounting to 20,000 days’ worth of minimum wage (approximately US$108,000*) over the past 12 months." With all due respect, could you provide a link to the source for this information. If I quote it, I prefer to have named source other than "on the internet". Thanks in advance. . . I never name a sourse as "on the internet". Here is the official INM website and the information in Spanish and English. Documentos necesarios (Necessary Documents) En el caso de pensionados o jubilados deberán presentar: a) Comprobante de inversiones o cuentas bancarias con saldo promedio mensual equivalente a veinticinco mil días de salario mínimo general vigente en la Ciudad de México durante los últimos doce meses. b) Documentos que demuestren que cuenta con ingresos o pensión mensual libre de gravámenes equivalente a quinientos días de salario mínimo general vigente en la Ciudad de México, durante los últimos seis meses In the case of pensioners or retirees, they must present: a) Proof of investments or bank accounts with an average monthly balance equivalent to twenty-five thousand days of minimum wage in force in Mexico City during the last twelve months. b) Documents proving that you have a tax-free monthly income or pension equivalent to five hundred days of the minimum wage in force in Mexico City, during the last six months

Increase Mexican Fuel Prices

Our illustrious president has promised.that there will be no increase in fuel prices. That said, he never claimed that wouldn't include increases in IEPS (sin tax) for gasoline, diesel, cigarettes and liquor. He is intent on reviving the failing PEMEX and will throw as much money as possible at it. Current PEMEX debt is 102 billion dollars and he needs an additional 108 billion dollars to bring the existing five refineries up to par and to build his new claim to fame, the refinery Dos Bocas. Here are the increases for 2020: En el caso de la Magna, el IEPS tendrá un incremento de 2.911%, respecto del 2019; mientras que la Premium de 2.956% y el diésel de 3.030 por ciento. Magna 2.911% Premium 2.95% Diesel 3.030 % Feliz Año Nuevo!!!!

RE: Having an RV in Mexico when residente permanente

Not trying to be controversial, but why not just do it the right way and import the rv permanently paying the appropriate taxes? Although SAT has the last word, as you know rules can be interpreted in different ways just as the issue with the heavy pickup or returning to the U.S. bringing what you think is passable or not. Each agent or department has its own criteria. That said, the same can happen in Mexico with vehicles and paperwork in municipalities or at checkpoints. The Mexican aduana, in Laredo and Reynosa, have become very strict on vehicle importation and paperwork. There was a period a few years back when many agencias aduanales lost their licenses for doing crooked things and those that had their vehicles imported by them risked or still risk losing their vehicles. Your plan just sounds like too much hassle. JMHO

RE: Having an RV in Mexico when residente permanente

I paid 22% of the value to import our travel trailer. Not sure what the taxes are now. I'm not a lawyer, but if the info you received regarding the 10-year permit were true, there would be a lot more Mexican residents with rvs on a 10-year permit. I sometimes wish our rv had U.S. or Canadian plates. In terms of transito, it seems that non-Mexican plated RVs have fewer hassles assuming that the gringo driver speaks no Spanish. I could be wrong on that though.

RE: US post new Mexican travel warnings

The last five years I worked in many high schools along the Texas border and central Texas. Talk about corruption and violence. You don't need to cross the border for that. The cartels are embedded in 20 major U.S. cities. Crime is rampant throughout most of the Americas. We've waited too long to deal with the cartels. It's no longer just about drugs, they have diversified and have taken over many different industries and agriculture as well. Wonder why avocados are so expensive? Our new Mexican president is a joke. The U.S. should clamp down on him. His policy for security and cartels in Mexico is, "peace and tranquility". No confrontations. Murders in Mexico have risen this year by 25%. The cartels are on to the new president and know they have free reign. What happened in Culiacan with the son of El Chapo Guzman was a travesty. The president is responsible for that and the deaths that followed along with the tragedy of the LeBaron family in Chihuahua not to mention several ambushes of military and federal police. Disgusting.
