There are different types of gasoline grade levels. The PEMEX gasoline grades are:
Magna – which is considered Regular Unleaded 87 Octane in the US – green pump handle

The gasoline is filled in liters and the pumps take pesos or US dollars but the gas is charged in pesos.
For those that need numbers, here is a quick guide to understand liter to gallon conversion and an idea of the price you will be paying in Mexico per gallon.
One US gallon is equal to 3.785 liters. You will pay approximately $2.34 USD per US gallon. Each liter will then be about 7 pesos. Diesel will be cheaper approximately 6 pesos per liter.
