SOUTH DAKOTA, July 12, 2017 - The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has donated a permanent fueling station to the Buffalo Chip Campground, just weeks ahead of the 77th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota. Bikers and other motorists can now fuel with a 10 percent ethanol blend. Open 24 hours a day, this station will provide the highest octane available at the lowest price.
“Motorcycle owners are typically looking for high octane, and ethanol helps provide that,” said Robert White, RFA vice president of Industry Relations. “The Buffalo Chip is the only location in the area that offers 93 octane. The 93 is achieved by adding 10 percent ethanol to standard 91 octane premium, and, thanks to the cost savings of ethanol, 93 octane is actually cheaper than 91 octane. Every motorcycle manufacturer that sells product in the United States endorses the use of up to 10 percent ethanol, and we know this will be a great addition to the area during the annual rally, and the rest of the year.”
The station is a new addition for Buffalo Chip Campground, and part of the RFA’s effort to educate motorcyclists on ethanol.
“We are excited about this new addition and the ability to offer fuel to the public thanks to the Renewable Fuels Association,” said Buffalo Chip Owner Rod Woodruff. “It will be one more service we can provide while helping set the record straight on ethanol.”
The Sturgis rally begins August 7 and concludes on Aug. 13.
