Ethanol gas burns hotter and can damage air cooled engines.

Actually ethanol runs cooler than "straight" gas- the off set to that is that it creates less energy. But how much less? I don't know but even if its 20% less - that means 10% of the fuel is creating 20% less energy - you are getting 2% less energy. On my 16 MPG Tahoe you can't tell the difference.

I use E-10 in all our 4-stroke engines, with no problems whatsoever! Ethanol was originally added to reduce pollution, now it's doing that and carrying the farm economy! I was pretty sure you were wrong, so I googled it, and this is what I found!

Ethanol helps keep engines clean, too. It burns more completely and at a slightly cooler temperature than gasoline. ... Oxygen atoms inside ethanol join forces with oxygen molecules in the air to help ethanol burn more completely. This extra amount of oxygen also helps gasoline burn better when it is blended with ethanol.
