Station Owner Pleads No Contest To Gas Mislabeling
HURON, SD -

A Wolsey travel center owner has pleaded no contest to selling mislabeled fuel.

An attorney for 281 Travel Center owner Robert McGillvrey told a judge his client contracted with Rapid City-based M.G. Oil Co. for delivery of 87 octane fuel, but the company sent lower-grade 85 octane fuel instead.

The fuel was filled in tanks attached to pumps labeled 87 octane.

As a part of the plea agreement, Beadle County prosecutors stipulated Wednesday that the 85 octane fuel was delivered without McGillvrey's knowledge. The center was fined $500.

In November, M.G. Oil pleaded no contest to selling 85-octane fuel at its five Corner Pantry stations in Huron.

A new rule allows the sale of 85-octane gasoline only in nine western counties and only until June 30.
