    I’m working on a route down Baja and am in question if I can pick up fuel in San Francisquito. We are wanting to run as light as possible and would not have to carry additional fuel if there was some in that area. Thanks

    Hopefully somebody will chime in with thier contact info for you, it is possible, there is gas available (usually) at Rancho Pedro Blanca that's not far from there, there is another Rancho in the area as well but the name escapes me at the moment.

    I have contacted Leonel Peralta Arce (who's family run San Francisquito) via Facebook to make reservations and ask for gas. If you ask ahead of time, it can usually be arranged.

    Leonel has gas. I bought a gallon from him just to be on the safe side for my departure.
    I think it was about $7. But it sure beats pushing!
    Just ask him and top off before you leave.

    Been there 4 times and was always able to buy gas. it’s pricey but they are the only game in town...
    Haven’t been in a couple years so maybe someone can chime in that has been more recent.
    I’ll be there again over x-mass though...
