The water in the deathanol won't kill an engine by itself, but it can wreck your day if you can't get the bike started, and can vapor lock.
I hate ethanol with a passion.
In passenger vehicles, it decreases MPG by AT LEAST 3.
My dad's truck gets 16 at best here in Texas, in Oklahoma, where there is ethanol-free gas, it gets 19. WTF EPA?!?!?!?!
Took it for a short ride; still can't get over how awesome the NGK plug is.
