Scotty Kilmer, mechanic for the last 50 years, gives the plus and minuses of using ethanol in your car. E 85 may have been touted too early for most people, but realize the gasoline you already buy contains 10 percent ethanol in it already.
the indy cars all use alcohol fuels even today last time I checked
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
