Ethanol doesn't have nearly the BTU that normal unleaded does, thus the more ethanol mixed in the less gas mileage you get (meaning you have to stop and get more gas more often). Another problem with ethanol is that it is more polluting than straight unleaded (around 22% more hydrocarbons) even though it was pushed as a "green" fuel.
also if you have a car that wasn't made in the last 5 years or so, the ethanol will eat up the gaskets in your engine over time... which is serious shit
of course you could take your car apart and put in the ethanol compatible gaskets... but who wants to do all that?
and i find real gas makes my small engines (mower, weedeater, etc) run much much much better
everybody else beat me
