I believe 10% ethanol blended fuels are a conspiracy and also fairly shyte, but I'm still pretty sure it's incapable of that sort of external damage. Fumes you say ? what are ethanol fumes doing in your engine bay ? :? And generally in regards to timing advancing will usually lean out and heat up iirc. retarding won't alter heat much, inside or out.

Also as a side note most injector cleaners are toluene based, which was banned from fuels a while ago. (again iirc)

I have heard some fuel companies may actually stop selling ethanol because there is not much profit to be had on it anyway, so no more cracked boosters or pods on fire or baby jesus crying. Damn you ethanol :evil:

Ethanol is actually the next best logical step from petrol. It's just that the government got involved with the 'E10' and it became scandalous. The problem also being that it's only 10% ethanol meaning that the margin for profit is very little. We're just antiquated as most of our vehicles on the road are lucky to run on 10% reliably.

Ethanol can be made from many things and most importantly for the tree huggers, it's renewable. The drama is that Australia will/is finding it hard to compete with brazil. It's the same old problem as the fossil fuel oil, we've got more than enough to go around, if we stop phuking around and selling it overseas and buying it back etc.

The fermentation that produces ethanol also produces co2 which is also containable and utilised. Europe is considered ahead of the 8ball with ethanol but I would say it's just logical proceeding without procrastination.
