ethanol, which is why any ethanol-free gasoline costs more than E10...sometimes lots more. Additionally, benzine and toluene are hazardous to breathe
and they are not as clean burning as ethanol.
If you would like to see some videos that demonstrate how harmful aromatics
are go to YouTube and search for any of the following video titles:

The amount of energy in any given fuel doesn't have a bearing on its MPG???
Is that what you actually said? Marc, Go back to school.... and don't waste my
Reply from MARC:
Tom, you're back so soon - it was just a couple of days ago that you tried to
make the same point and I soundly thrashed you. Well, okay, I'm happy to do it
The BTU rating of gasoline is irrelevant. A gasoline-optimized internal combustion engine delivers the MPG it does because it is optimized to run on gasoline.
The same engine optimized to run on ethanol, and using ethanol, will deliver
comparable or better MPG than the gasoline-optimized engine.
If you tried to use gasoline in an ethanol-optimized engine it will deliver far less
MPG. If BTU was the important factor then gasoline would achieve better results even in an ethanol-optimized engine.
