Default what is the deal with ethonal

I've been hearing so much ---- about ethonal latly. Anyone know what exactly is going on? All I know is there are going to be alot of pumps selling this now and I dont think its going to be good for boosted cars.

ethanol would be good for boosted cars if they were designed with a fuel delivery system that would handle it. Ethanol has a higher octane rating so in a sense, it is like cheap race gas......

well its going crazy around here (kansas city). I guess all pumps are going to have it now or something. Its supposed to be cleaner burning and cheaper since its domestic.
