RE: More ULSD info

This information will probably drive the naysayers into another frenzy, but I'm pleased to announce that I have just driven a 2019 GMC Sierra Duramax pickup down the Baja from San Ysidro to Los Barriles (about an hour north of San Jose del Cabo), with NO sulfur-in-fuel related issues. I had deliberately run my fuel tank to low before entering Mexico so that almost all of the fuel used was from Pemex stations on the Baja. I utilized my GM test equipment to watch the emissions during the trip and for the first time ever there was NO indication of sulfur levels above 15 ppm. This is yet one more piece of evidence that ULSD is now the norm on the entire Baja, consistent with information provided by Pemex, and consistent with the Mexican refinery upgrades confirmed by companies other than Pemex. We're currently in Mazatlan, travelling with a 2013 Duramax and a 2017 Duramax. Absolutely no issues so far. Last year we had several post-2011 diesels in our park and there was not a single issue for any of them. Perhaps Mr Moishe's anonymous "petroleum industry executive" is a little off the mark.

RE: Hermosillo Bypass OPEN!!!!

Second hand from friends who took it last week. It's labeled Periferico Oriente / Mexico 15 and starts just past the toll both before you get to town when you are heading south. I have confirmation from 3 different people who travelled this area in the past few days that THE HERMOSILLO BYPASS IS NOT OPEN. As I said before, I think someone is a bit mixed-up in reporting this as being open.

RE: Hermosillo Bypass OPEN!!!!

Mex, that picture is of the north entrance to the Ciudad Obregon bypass. We took that new route on the way home last spring. This thread is about the Hermosillo bypass which is DEFINITELY NOT OPEN YET.

RE: Hermosillo Bypass OPEN!!!!

I think somebody may have things a bit mixed up here. Here's a link to an article on El Imparcial.com (with pictures) that shows the bypass being months away from completion. The article is dated Sept 12, 2018. Hermosillo Bypass Maybe the photos are old ones, but all of the articles on El Imparcial indicate this is not completed and won't be open till at least the end of November. I'm really looking forward to this being open, as I hate driving through Hermosillo, but I think the announcement that it is open is a bit premature.
