PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Part of the state’s vehicle fleet will begin using a blend of gasoline and ethanol as fuel.

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard on Thursday announced that the state will launch a six-month test period during which some vehicles will be fueled on E15.

The state will use E15 in flex fuel vehicles and some newer non-flex fuel models. Flex fuel vehicles make up more than 58 percent of the state’s fleet.

E15 will be offered at fuel sites in Brookings, Pierre, Rapid City and Sioux Falls.

Ron Lamberty with the American Coalition for Ethanol says the move will support farmers in the state and the ethanol industry. He says the group believes state employees will find E15 safe, reliable and affordable.
