I actually run non ethanol fuel. Especially in farm equipment and anything that can sit for a while.
Ethanol fuels are very BAD AT ABSORBING WATER. Chemical engineer would call it "Phase Separation".
Ethanol and water combine in the fuel tank and degrade the tank and lines.
Molecules of water in the air are absorbed by the ethanol molecules. Brain hurts now Nap time

Fuel does not need ethanol to absorb water. If you were around before ethanol you should remember gas line freeze up in cold weather. The water collected in the fuel tank and/or dropped out with a temperature change would freeze due to the below freezing weather. The air craft industry does not use ethanol blended fuel and they still sump their tanks to remove water. This is true for gasoline and jet fueled aircraft.

Right on. Don't use unless planning to get it out of tank soon. Chainsaws, sawmill , tractors all get non-ethanol fuel & they work just great.
