Its bullshit, ethanol has less energy density than gasoline.

Its higher "octane" which only matters if you tune for it (or have a vehicle that does it automatically) and when you do guess what you use more ethanol fuel to go the same distance.

My truck is flex-fuel, and the two tanks of E-86 I put in it I averaged 11 MPG, so that is a 27 gallon tank going less than 250 miles between fills.

Its bullshit you aren't making more power with ethanol outside of specialized applications.
