“We do not know what is happening in Mérida. We are going to investigate further because it seems that they are reaching an agreement to prevent the verifications ”, he sentenced.

Similarly, Ricardo Sheffield reported that, as a result of the 178 verifications carried out in various parts of the country, a “rake” was found at a gas station in Michoacán. It is a device to control the fuel flow remotely.

In this regard, he warned that whoever is discovered using this or another type of device to steal gasoline, the concession to supply it will be withdrawn.

Through the Liter per liter application, Profeco has dealt with 222 complaints that have resulted in 178 verification visits. There are seven gas stations that have refused the process. Irregularities have been detected in 11 stations.
