I don't think there would be any ethanol in the engine after it burns off, unless the engine is being over fed with fuel..
The point I was trying to make is the ethanol does not produce as much power as the same amount of gas. The one good thing about ethanol is it will not detonate under high compression. That is why racers use it. They can force more ethanol into a race engine than gasoline so they end up with more power even though ethanol does not make as much power as gas. In this case more is better.
