WASHINGTON, August 2, 2017 - The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) is partnering with the Buffalo Chip Campground for the ninth straight year to host the Sturgis Motorcycle in South Dakota. The RFA will be promoting high-octane, low-cost ethanol to motorcyclists with a newly opened fueling station, which offers 93 octane, 10 percent ethanol gasoline. For three days during the rally, Aug. 8-10, for two hours each day, RFA will once again be giving away free tanks of gas at its Free Fuel Happy Hours. Robert White, RFA’s VP of industry relations said it’s a great opportunity to educate the motorcycling community on the benefits of ethanol, and help correct the misinformation spread by ethanol’s opponents. “Every motorcycle manufacturer that sells product in the United States approves the use of up to 10 percent ethanol,” White said. At the rally, RFA will also sponsor the 10th annual Legends Ride on Aug. 7, which has raised nearly $500,000 for charities like the Black Hills Special Olympics. The 77th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is scheduled for Aug. 4-13.
