CNG available in Mexico?

I live in Seattle and am planning to take the boat to Mexico for this winter.

The range is CNG and I prefer to keep it if possible.

I was ready to bite the propane bullet but during the conversation about converting the existing range and installing a propane system my local dealer told me that many places in Mexico now have CNG for vehicles and could fill my tanks.

This actually leads to the question of CNG in San Francisco and San Diego also. Those will be my two stops going down the coast. The boat used to live in So Cal and one assumes the stove fuel is still available but it pays to check.

So if anyone has information on this I would appreciate any advice.

Here's a webpage that can locate alternative fuel stations, including CNG stations. LINK

SFO LA and SD seem to be well covered. Not sure what the situation in Mexico is like though.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
