          It was not possible.
          Exports to all Axis powers were increasing right up to the outbreak of war.
          Both right and wrong. Germany tended to purchase oil through brokers from two main companies (Texaco and Standard Oil - Exxon/Esso - if memory serves). Direct purchases off Mexico were only initiated by through Davis Oil when a Junkers aircraft deal was being negotiated. The problem for Germany was that it was embargoed after some dodgy behaviour in Europe. Italy operated slightly differently, and purchased directly off Mexico, and also through Standard Oil and Dutch Shell. Mexico supplied about 10% of Italy's petroleum needs imports in 1939. Here's some figures:

          Year Italian imports of Mexican Oil (barrels)
          1937 187,240
          1938 259,107
          1939 3,315,107
          1940 3,212,820 (first six months)

          Regarding Japan, I cannot find any petroleum only figures. However here are the Mexican-Japanese terms of trade 1938-1941. Mexican minerals besides petroleum are significant contributors. Another signifiacnt contributor was fish.

          Year Imports ex-J Exports to-J(pesos)
          1938 8,770,669 3,590,576
          1939 7,268,499 9,393,887
          1940 17,512,204 24,043,248
          1941 25,372,217 21,247,224

            Really? So the Greek War of Independence was not fought on the continent, the Crimean War likewise, nor was Russia going to be confronted in SE Europe? Pardon my ignorance, but is not 40% of Europe called Russia?

                Some interesting and informative data but can you find imports per nation for Germany in 1939?
                I have only managed a few nations so far.
