The reason for ethanol is different than being assumed in this thread.

A dear friend of mine a retired engineer tells me the ethanol is in place of lead.

The gasoline is getting power from the ethanol optimized at 10% of the blend. Just as lead offered power.

I also wonder if some of the ethanol of corn is being shipped to other nations for the same purpose.
