a. A recent article in the Mexico News Daily warns that Pemex is unable to meet the deadline of Dec 31, 2019 for full conversion to Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD). However, competitive stations like Esso and Repsol actively advertise on their pumps that their diesel is ULSD, so there is always an option to choose a different supplier.I have been the go-to guy on this subject since 2008, having done numerous lab tests of Mexican diesel over the years. I haven’t received a single verifiable report of sulfur in fuel problems since April of 2018. NOT A SINGLE ONE all last winter, and none again so far this winter !My best guess to explain this is that Pemex has enough ULSD from it’s recently converted refineries to supply most or all of the retail sector gas stations across the country, but is still supplying LSD to marine customers, as well as some large wholesale and non-road users.  I have had my own 2019 GMC Sierra Duramax down in Los Barriles since October with not even a hint of a problem. The Baja has been 100% ULSD since mid-2018, and there is presently no reason to believe that LSD will start being distributed here again.Ted White at whitetmp@aol.com
