At the Queretaro exit the nice lady took the card, scanned it and charged us $450 pesos for about 150 Kilometres of great highway. Since we came down in January, they have opened a Pemex station in each direction. They are at KM 162, near the Puebla end of the route.
The pushpin location is not exact, but it is close.
