Here in Cuernavaca in Morelos state, I try to buy all of my gasoline at Sam’s Club or at the Wall-Mart Super-center to get an honest measure.
A few years ago, before the first Super-canter was built, Sam's Club built a service station in their parking lot. There were several articles in the local newspapers about it at that time. Any gasoline vendor must be approved by the Federal government. If another business like Sam's Club, etc. wants o sell gasoline, they must contract with a licensed vendor to establish their own service station. I think Wall-mart Must have a very strong contract with their gasoline vendor, or maybe the vendor has always been honest.
We live in the north of the city. There is a Pemex station near us. My late wife remarked one day, that she could always drive further on the gas she bought at Sam's Club. That did it or me, I asked her to try to buy her gas at Sam;s Club whenever possible in the future, I now try to buy all of my gas at either Sam's or Wall-Mart. I have noticed that they always top the tank off manually after the pumps shuts off automatically, most stations do not. I think they may not want you to realize that their pump says that they have delivered more gas that your tank will hold.
The site that Rolly posted is useful, but the problem I have with it, is that it will tell you about the number of complaints, but not what they involved.
For all of the bellyachers out there, if you own a computer, printer,TV, DVD player, etc. you probably have some things made in China, even if there is a US nameplate on it. When two Wall-Mart Super-centers opened in this area 4 or 5 years ago, it was a great improvement for local shopping.
