SD Big Vision Business Plan

Jason Frerichs: State senator-Wilmot,SD

"When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses......the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker, a raving lunatic." Dresden James

My Dad Kent, neighbor Orrie Swayze, and I have plotted ethanol strategy for 30 years: We see growing support for a big vision business plan for SD that benefits all auto owners first: Historically the big vision included free enterprise dramatically increasing demand for ethanol's 'sweet spot' or premium E30: That today would double our ethanol industry, its associated good jobs and widespread business activity. 

First we must start honestly informing (so-called) non-flex fuel auto owners they are not second class citizens and can legally fuel with 94 octane E30's unique charge air cooling's more power. E30's high oxygen content means more complete combustion nearly eliminating engine damaging carbon deposits i.e. remarkably cleaner oil and engines lowering maintenance costs. 

Why would auto owners choose regular unleaded, e10/15 if premium E30 is available? 

For over ten years we and thousands of pioneering undesignated flex fuel auto owners have annually driven millions of trouble free miles on half E85 and today blender pumps' premium E30. From the beginning typical comments have always been 'more power' and 'can't tell any mileage difference'. 

Why aren't all Midwest state owned undesignated flex fuel autos operating on E30 demonstrating premium E30's benefits? The truth is state leaders fear challenging an 'out of control'EPA sponsored fraudulent perception: "E30 is illegal for and damages (so-called) non-flex fuel engines" 

As a state senator, I am hopeful we can generate bi-partisan support for putting SD state owned undesignated flex fuel autos on E30. Then adjoining state leaders will be encouraged to follow our lead to openly support all auto owners' right to benefit by choosing ethanol's premium blend E30. Midwest states moving together putting all state owned autos on E30 will shock EPA. EPA can cry foul but the Clean Air Act's amended anti-tampering provisions will not allow any legal recourse.
