Pure Ethanol??? I guess the question would be why?? Pumps sell E70-E85 which is more than enough fuel to make all the HP that any E46 has ever made!

I'm in HI and it's not available at pumps for me. This is the only ethanol I have available to me. Was wondering if anyone has experience with this sugar cane 100 vs corn e85. Besides, why not push it further?

Been on methanol, in other words alcohol for the last 9 years with good results.

Once the overall fuel system is designed for methanol, or alcohol it does work.

All you need to do is check / replace injectors and pumps from time to time as alchy damages these parts in the short time....
