TOURIST CARDS

Yesterday, while checking out of Mexico at KM21 south of Nogales, I asked the INM officer if their are problems getting a tourist FMM? He told me that there is no problem at all. The look on his face said it all. YMMV

RE: They are comming to take me away

I have been living life pretty much near normal since this began. Besides some restaurants being shut down, not much change. I have been traveling around quite a bit in Mexico and the USA. Cancun to Puerto Vallarta to KY to Cali since March. The roads have a lot of new asphalt, have been empty, the driving great. You would have loved it Wm Elliot. You left Mexico too soon In my pueblo, besides closing the zocolo, malecon, wearing masks and sanitizer everywhere, most folks are living their lives. It is funny seeing people in masks pulling them down to kiss a friend "hello" and them pulling them up again.

RE: Anyone cross the border from US to Mexico lately?

He's definitely an asset. Thanks!!! Looks like he also provides a necessary service while getting to travel. Now I have to find that "perfect" camper for my truck. Then I can really have some fun. :)

RE: Anyone cross the border from US to Mexico lately?

I have crossed the border 4 times in the last month, 2 north and 2 south. Mexico is not stopping tourists entering Mexico by land. I have seen the southbound direction to be the same process as before the so called "restrictions" I have stood in line at IMM waiting to process my FMM. playaboy, thanks for that confirmation. Where did you cross the border at?? Going north, Anzalduas and Colombia; going south Anzalduas both times. This week I will be crossing north at Mariposa

RE: Toll Roads

I am diving the motor home up to the States for a South American family stuck in Mexico. They are going south and the RV is going north to a consignment lot. I use the sct site all the time when figuring budgets. I am just trying to have a accurate budget for them. I know that the toll costs are the costs and you pay to use. BTW, There is a lot of new asphalt on the toll roads making them smoother than the free roads in most areas

Toll Roads

I am going to be driving a Class C motor home out of Mexico. It is a dually. Am I charged the 3 axle truck rate or the 3 axle bus rate?

RE: hate to be a donnie downer...

Maybe the high price of fuel is the reason. $4.25-4.50 a gallon compared to $2.50 in the USA.

RE: Need advice on TIP

No province will ever change the registratipn. The vin shows up as a truck To call it a motorhome you have to show papers where it was an unfinished vehicle and more papers where it was converted. Lots of red tape. Nothing with governments is that easy. FYI, back in 2006 I received a 10 year permit on my truck/lance camper and my cargo trailer. It was a sweet gift from consulate banjercito office in San Bernardino. I know it can be done (at least back then)

RE: Need advice on TIP

The truck is not a dually and in the past my husband and I got permits for our 5th wheel and same truck with no issues.. Since he has passed away ..I now travel with a slide in camper towing a chev tracker which is much easier.. I'm in my seventies and sure would like to go to the mainland again.. If not I guess I'll have to rethink next winter's plan.Hence the reason to be certain before crossing. I do appreciate all the input and find this forum a wealth of information. Try to get your province to change the registration on your truck and camper to an RV. Then you can get a 10 year RV sticker for the truck and a 180 day Chevy sticker. Also, you will avoid the truck GVW issues.

RE: Need advice on TIP

Yes. You are allowed to have a TIP for a vehicle and what you are towing. Get them on line in advance and make your life easier! I think that is only true when one of the TIP's is an RV-10 year permit.

RE: Four Questions

Yes, concerning the toll booths. I just drove south on 15D to Lakeside the last 2 days. There were 7 casetas taken over by "others". I paid 50 pesos at each of them and down the road I went. The Federalas didn't seem to concerned with any of this. I went directly thru Navojoa, early in the morning, with my dually and cargo trailer.

RE: Obtaining permits while in Mexico

If she crosses at Anzalduas all the offices are there

RE: Obtaining permits while in Mexico

She is 2 days from the Belice border too, if she was heading that way. Not many inspections heading east. Maybe she could get a returno seguro from Aduana?

RE: Diesel Fuel for newer diesels

Hey, I remember this same argument on this forum back in 2008 and then again in 2011. I see not much has changed in 2020. I asked this same question last year for a friend traveling to mexico and got mixed responses from these forum. I told my friend to check with the manufacture and get it in writing whatever the answer was. This only affects diesel rigs from NOB visiting Mexico. What is that? 1500 trucks total for a year? Mexican trucks have no problems with LSD.

RE: Mariposa crossing heading north

Playboy. After you left the secondary area how did you make the left turn to get on the road? I never entered secondary, I exited on the left side of secondary

RE: Mariposa crossing heading north

I crossed a couple of days ago pulling my trailer. There was no way I was able to cut across traffic to the bus lane as Moishe suggested. I just got in line in the middle. Once the officer finished with me, He led me to the left side of secondary and moved some barriers out of the way. That gave me a straight shot out.

RE: Diesel Fuel for newer diesels

The first thing you need to do is to disregard the opinions of the nay-sayers who are blowing smoke on a topic they have no actual experience with, and look for information from people with verifiable actual experience. I have a 2013 Chev 3500HD that has travelled to Puerto Vallarta every year since it was new. That's SEVEN trips to PV and back, and I have had ZERO fuel-related issues. I haul a 5th there and back, and I use my truck as a daily driver for the 5 months I spend there each year. Certainly there are a few little things you need to do to avoid problems, the most important of which is to make sure your truck gets up to full operating temperature each time you drive it, and also don't let it sit and idle for any length of time. Letting it sit and idle for a lengthy time will bring on the Check Engine light even back in the US or Canada using ULSD. Also don't believe the nay-sayers who spout their opinions that ULSD is not available anywhere but at the border. I have a Pemex Delivery Report all the way back in 2017 showing ULSD being delivered to stations in PV and my friend who provided this to me assures me that nothing has changed since then. Opinions are worthless, actual experience is what you need to look for. I live in Mexico full time. I have no dog in this fight. Last year, I wanted a dually diesel and decided to purchase an older truck to avoid this issue. I agree with you 150%, experience is key. Here is my first hand experience. I left the GDL area yesterday, driving up Hwy 15D, on my way to Vegas. From Mazatlan north I saw several Arco, Chevron, and Gulf stations. Arco advertised imported USA fuel. I didn't stop at the others. I don't think you will have an issue with fuel to Mazatlan. FYI, Fuel prices were from 21.2 to 22.1 a liter with a lot of stations selling at 21.8-9 or $4.45 a . OUCH

RE: Diesel Fuel for newer diesels

It is not that long a trip, you should be ok with any diesel for a few tanks. I would not count on getting ULSD, you might but it will be hit and miss. Even the stations that say they import all their fuel from the USA doesn't make that fuel the same as the USA. Mexico gets some of their LSD from the USA.
