I do believe you are in error about the chemistry of ethanol in aliphatic chains, and you are singularly categoric about its use in automotive fuel systems, where once again I believe you are mistaken - perhaps you had a bad experience with isopropanol, which is a different story. Aside this, I do protest your "single-issue" approach - "all woes in the automotive world are due to ethanol in the fuel system. Only when this resident evil has been ruled out, may we begin to consider other issues" (hyperbole intentional). I believe this "gripe" is leading you to give impertinent and useless advice to others, who come here with legitimate questions and deserve better-qualified answers. GF
