If it was 100% would we not be drinking it?

Pure ethanol certainly wouldn"t work well as a substitute for gasoline in engines designed to run on the latter. I wonder how well it would work in distillate engines, though? (Not that I have any way to find out.)

Oh, well. According to the newsies soon enough everything not electric will be running on LNG or hydrogen and gasoline will be illegal.

I agree, it wouldn't work well as a direct substitute, but if you knew you had a reliable supply of straight ethanol you could build and tune for it, mainly higher compression lower air/fuel ratio. It would have to cost half as much as gasoline just to break even.

Two reasons for mixing gasoline with Ethanol. It makes it difficult to consume as a beverage!! and it also allows vehicles to start in cold weather. Which pure Ethanol doesn't do because of vapor pressure (stays liquid) issues in cold climates. Jim

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see Yup, they are required to add white gas at the Ethanol Plant otherwise they would be a distillery making corn whisky.
