E15 For South Dakota Fleet Vehicles

March 7, 2014

Pierre - South Dakota will begin incorporating E15 for the state's fleet vehicles. The announcement, made by Gov. Dennis Daugaard on March 6, said E15 will be made available during a test period at four major fuel sites across the state for a six-month period.

"South Dakota is a large ethanol producer, and our state has significantly benefitted from the ethanol industry," Daugaard said. "The goal is to use more of our homegrown fuel by using E15, the newest fuel in the marketplace."

He said E15 will be used by the state's flex fuel vehicles (FFVs), which comprise 85 percent of the state's fleet of 1,950 vehicles, and newer non-FFVs. At present, the state's fueling sites primarily offer E10.

Following the six-month period, the state will evaluate the use of E15 for its fleet vehicles. The fueling sites will be in Brookings, Pierre, Rapid City and Sioux Falls.
