Event Highlights: King’s Mart, the only station with an ethanol blender pump in Sioux Falls, celebrated National AFV Day Odyssey with a fuel discount of 85 cents off per gallon of E85, 30 cents off per gallon of E30, and 10 cents off per gallon of E10. The American Lung Association in South Dakota and the Clean Air Choice Team had a successful fuel promotion selling 318 gallons of E10, 355 gallons of E30, and 519 gallons of E85 during this event. This prevented more than two tons of emissions from entering the air. South Dakota Corn Utilization Council’s support was instrumental in the event’s success.
