bugs + trash = diesel?

It'd be cool if they can figure out how to do it on a large scale.

Anyone else been making runs to Mexico for fuel? Our jobsite is a little over 30 miles from the border. I've heard some stories of guys being hassled coming back across but we have had no troubles. Got 100 gallon transfer tank and we go down 2 sometimes 3 times per week. Not to get anyone upset here or jealous, but we have been paying between 2.12 and 2.19 a gallon. We monitor fuel mileage very closely, and also have been watching the filters. Don't believe the bad rumours this is good fuel. We have experienced no issues and are currently saving a little over 2k a month on the fuel bill! That's more money for MODS!

So have I and he got popped. I believe his construction company was on the Tex/Mex border. I'd shut up if I were you. I wish I was closer to the border myself.

I second this, Not to be rude man, but the border and immigration laws state that its for personal/non commercial use. So not to get your company or yourself in trouble, just keep it as your little secret.
