Reviews for Enrique Jr. - Fuel
turtle bay fuel ok , 2015-03-20

We took on fuel March 10 2015 from a panga that pulled up alongside. Purchased 200 gallons paid roughly the same price as Cabo fuel was clean and we had no problems. as to the quantity it was not metered, my sight tubes put it close to what I asked for. I have to admit I was more interested in the quality. Since it is the only place between San Diego and Cabo I would expect to pay more for fuel, being mexico I would also expect an enterprising individual trying to make a little extra. On a plus the guys were friendly and made the transfer and purchasing of fuel

The line handlers areexcellent. They quickly secure your boat and lower the fuel pump. They made us feel like we had to hurry and in hind sight, we should have climbed up to the pump to confirm it was set to zero before fueling. They sold us 50 gallons more than our boat will hold and charged $1/gallon more than Cabo San Lucas. In the end, the man on the pump asked for a tip.

Prior to our departure for Mexico we had spoken with previous travelers who had issues with Enrique%u2019s fuel service in Turtle Bay with regard to the lack of accurate metering and fuel quality. Additionally, many boaters complained that since the passing of Anabell%u2019s proprietor Ruben, Enrique%u2019s was taking advantage of a monopoly opportunity given Anabell%u2019s competitive operation was only sporadic. Based on this information we contacted Anabell%u2019s prior to our arrival in order to purchase our fuel from them.

When we entered Turtle Bay, one of Enrique%u2019s pangas approached us to sell us fuel. We graciously declined. Unbeknownst to them we speak Spanish. When we declined their service, they dismissed us with language (in Spanish) that one would not hear on American over the air television.

In the following days while at anchor in Turtle Bay we spoke with other visiting yatistas (all recreational boaters in Mexico are referred to as yatistas.) Since Anabelle%u2019s wasn%u2019t offering full time service, many of these yatistas were forced to purchase fuel from Enrique%u2019s. Upon learning that we had a hydrometer aboard which we used to test for clean fuel, they asked if we could test the diesel they had just purchased from Enrique%u2019s. We tested the fuel from three different purchasers. All three samples (most likely from the same batch) tested with a specific gravity suggesting the fuel had been watered-down or diluted by approximately 5 percent.

Giving Enrique%u2019s the benefit of the doubt, our sampling doesn%u2019t from a statistical analysis perspective prove any hypothesis that Enrique%u2019s is watering down the fuel. It is quite possible that the samples we tested had been subjected to condensation within Enrique%u2019s storage tanks.

With regard to the metering issue, we did not do any testing ourselves. Anecdotally, one of our neighbors indicated he filled two 1-gallon containers with fuel and was charged for 8.1 liters rather than for 7.6 liters. This overcharge represents a 7 percent error in Enrique%u2019s favor.

Compared to others experiences with Enrique%u2019s fueling, our service from Anabelle%u2019s was friendly and problem free.

We cannot conclude that Enrique%u2019s is dishonest. We can conclude on the dates we were in Turtle Bay that Enrique%u2019s fuel was contaminated with water and Annabelle%u2019s fuel was not. We can also state we didn%u2019t have a problem with Anabelle%u2019s meter calibration while another boater did have a problem with Enrique%u2019s metering. Additionally, our brief encounter with Enrique%u2019s panga was not exactly customer friendly.

We would highly recommend, if given a choice, you utilize Anabelle%u2019s fueling service as opposed to Enrique%u2019s.

Purchased 150 gallons - ran without polishing and no problems.
Nov 4, 2012, purchased 140 gallons of diesel. Ran thru fuel polisher and found it to be clean, no problems. Enrique Jr. will also taxi you to town pier.

Provides metered fuel dilivery to your boat, water taxt, arrainge laundry, and assist with anything needed.

With the passing of Annabell's owner, also the only person currently offering fuel delivery in town.
