I have heard stories about people getting very bad fuel in Venezuela, not sure if this is still true ?
I would watch this ... a mate of mine has an incredible fuel straining and separation system which cleans diesel prior to it going into his tanks ... 1/3 of the diesel he purchased from tanks was water ... that's a lot of water
Hi typhoon, I checked, apparently there is no way a foreign boat can buy fuel legally. Absurd? yes! probably after next Sunday things will change ( we hope) drastically. Nevertheless I was told you can get fuel from third parties but price you have to bargain, but remember base price is "free".

Re: Cost of Diesel in th Caribbean
Petit Martinique was about 14.94 EC for imperial gallon of gasoline and 16.30 ec for imperial gallon of diesel. Ends up being about $4.60 a US gallon for diesel and $5.02 a US gallon for gasoline. I think Grenada has been a little more than that.
