I don't know what makes you think that there is no kerosene available in Mexico. It is correct that consumption at the end consumer level is way down, probably due to replacement by other light and energy sources. Still, in 2010 (last data available), the country still used 430 barrels a year: Mexico Kerosene Consumption by Year (Thousand Barrels per Day)

Oh, and if there weren't any kerosene, they wouldn't be flying planes (Jet A fuel is kerosene).
ok. get here to mexico and try to buy it. it is not for sale to citizens nor turistas. it is for government use only.
i am here in mexico finding that which i need and learning about that which is unavailable and you argue with me. this is hy larry us. definitely troll behaviour, thankyou very much. i have beeen writing from mexico fro over three years now.
i have actually been thanked when folks meet me for the info i post for them.

Re: safe cooking

well I was shot down...since captain jack isnt leaving the states sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

thats that for various fuel consumption sources in different countries

down here the word KEROSENE doesnt even exist...they use the word solvente or gas(gas in this case is DIESEL which is like kerosene but NOT exactly the same, as jet fuel either)

point being a pint of gas(diesel solvent) is around 8 bucks...vey expensive when you compare that to propane which is subsidzied by government and around $11 for 35lbs!

diesel at the pump is $4 but you would be very smoky and sooty doing so...yes there are diesel cookers down here but no go on a boat they are messy

as a fellow cruiser a while back I did a few refueling trips for some who needed a propane refuel for their boats on my motorcycle...

I got charged by the pound up here in san salvador loaded it back on my bike rode down to the anchorage and bobs your uncle

I also mentioned that not all places even in the states "view" alcohol or kerosene as cooking fuel so it is more scarce...but like everything good up north once you find a cood purveyor and price you just keep going to that place and your good to go

anywhoo

my input in this thread is done I guess...

hope jack gets a nice little stove for his boat and gets cooking stuff for the girlfriend

peace

Why are you so defensive? We are discussing availability of cooking fuels, for crying out loud! How aggressive do you get when the Really Important Questions of life are discussed, like "what is the best anchor?"

I may be a lame gringo in Northville but I can operate machinery like Google. When I put in "kerosene in mexico," it does not tell me anything about kero having suddenly become a controlled substance down there that mere mortals are not even allowed to sniff. Instead, it gives me Yellow Pages to gas stations that sell the stuff (e.g. Mexico Kerosene in Mexico MO Yellow Pages by Superpages). Are you telling me all these gas stations are part of a secret government program where only the military fills up their jerrycans?

Re: safe cooking

if you need to consider a mere splaination to folks as defensive. mebbe you should relearn psych 101a.

if it were still available in fueling stations then folks would actually be able to find the stuff....lol what have i said...fueling stations have gas, diesel, oil. only. if google sed otherwise, then the magical pump must be well hidden that no one can locate it.

Those links seem to be to the town of Mexico, MO, rather than the country.

Actually, the Mexico to which that page refers is Mexico, MO (Missouri).

However, I also have some pretty serious doubts about the validity of Zeehag's claims about denatured alcohol and kerosene in Mexico (the country). I also Googled various combinations of "Mexico", "alcohol", and "kerosene" and I could find absolutely nothing about their use or importation being banned. In fact, I found several posts on various camping and boating sites indicating that both fuels are available.

Re: safe cooking

arguing with those not able to forego ARGUING when provided a real time answer is totally not a valid option. come to mexico expecting to find easily or reasonably priced or even available stove fuels is an entirely different story. google aint always accurate... oh wait..is interwebz so must be real.
being here is real. not google
