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.
