Should You Buy A Car That Runs On Ethanol?

Formula 1 cars also used to run on alcohol until it was banned sometime in the 50s.

yes, but take a 1/4 mile drag racer on alcohol, uses 5 gallons of gas to go one quarter of a mile.

Ethanol is a great racing fuel. It has super high octane and cools a bit better allowing engines to run hotter
