SD inspectors now can check fuel octane levels
PIERRE (AP) -- South Dakota's Department of Public Safety says some of its inspectors now have devices to analyze the octane ratings of gasoline.
The agency recently said it is illegal to sell gas with an 85 octane level in South Dakota. An 85 octane level can cause an engine to run roughly. Motorists usually buy fuel with a minimum rating of 87.
