30-For-30 celebrates home-grown, renewable fuel in Pierre

Farm Forum

HURON, S.D. – South Dakota Farmers will be hosting a 30-For-30 event at Cowboy Country Store in Pierre (1619 N. Harrison Ave) August 3, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to celebrate the benefits of fueling up with Premium E30.

During the 30-For-30 event, drivers receive .30 cents for every gallon of Premium E30 purchased.

“Fueling up with 30 percent blend of ethanol not only saves folks money, but it supports South Dakota’s family farmers who market their corn to the state’s many ethanol plants,” explained Doug Sombke, President of South Dakota Farmers Union.

Sombke adds, “Premium E30 gives drivers of all makes and models a higher octane, renewable fuel resulting in increased fuel economy without the dangers of Benzene, a carcinogenic used to increase octane levels.”

Since the beginning, South Dakota Farmers Union has been a strong advocate for the ethanol industry. “We’re a grassroots organization who is focused on supporting family farmers and ranchers,” explains Kecia Beranek, SDFU Communications Specialist.
