- "Oje, the rackets yours. You just better not fuck things up."
- ―Gene Garza[src]
Gene Garza was the owner of Basso Oil Fill & Go.
Kept under the thumb of the Granados crime family, Garza kept himself to himself, securing his workplace by boarding up the windows for fear of attack from gangsters in 1959. These fears turned out to be well founded when the Corleones attacked the station and forced Garza to pay his tribute to them.
