WOW, No problems with ethanol in gas? It will eat rubber fuel lines, it will separate. Ethanol is water soluble, petroleum distillates are not.

Add $7.00 per gallon ethanol to $3.00 a gallon gasoline. The ethanol-gas mix costs more, is less efficient and you have to add a $20.00 a gallon additive to keep it from ruining your engines.

That is why products like "Dry-Gas" work. They are ethanol based and when you add them to a fuel tank that has water contamination it mixes with both the water and the fuel to allow the water molecules to be suspended in the fuel so that if it is a a small enough percentage of the total it will pass through the system. The water won't burn, but it will be expelled through the exhaust.

Why people claim that ethanol "attracts" water is beyond me. If you have water in your fuel tank then you will want to have ethanol in there to help get rid of it. If you do not have water in your fuel tank, having ethanol in the fuel will not somehow magically allow water from the outside to penetrate into your fuel tank. Granted, some small amount of water vapor from any humid air in the tank above the fuel will get into the fuel, but there should not be enough air exchange with the outside air to allow for large enough amounts of humid air to circulate into the top of the tank to pose a problem, If you have that much air exchange with the outside air, your bigger problems will be loss of fuel due to evaporation plus other contaminates like dust getting into the fuel tank.
