Almost a shame to bring the thread to a useful
But given that it is a useful product worldwide outside of simply boat cooking
(or as a cheap source of booze for Alkies) then no surprise that it is available in Mexico
- and even less that it is sold with a name such as "Alcohol Industrial". For me that sounds hopeful it comes in jumbo size and without the Marine
I dunno how the boat / marine
supply market works in Mexico, but my guess is that a product not on a shelf within 5 minutes walk of the dock
doesn't mean not available anywhere else in the whole country - more a case that it might need an order or simply a wander into the nearby town / city.
