Ethanol issue sputters along

Makers of cars and marine engines wary of EPA's proposed ethanol fuel cap increase

espn article on ethanol

Generally, such concerns involve:
The affinity between ethanol and water, which encourages condensation and causes more corrosion in metal parts
The fact that ethanol burns hotter and faster than regular unleaded gas, which ultimately shortens engine life
The heat buildup in engines, which could lead to vapor lock in the carburetion system and sudden engine failure
