The only issue with ethanol itself is the engine needs be built for it with raised compression and alcohol resistant components, the only "scam" is the horrid practice of mixing it with a completely different fuel type, gasoline - which ofc when pawned off on the public to run in unmodified engines results in decreased
fuel efficiency (buy more please) and repairs/replacement parts (buy more please).
If straight ethanol was readily available around here, I'd convert my four stroke in a heartbeat
