Ethanol blend in Petrol

Ethanol blend in petrol has been considered as an easy option to neutralise the rising cost of Petrol. It was earlier 5% and now enhanced to 10%. Whether there is a visible impact of such blend on fuel efficiency and existing Vehicle engine's life in long term? What's the opinion of experts and OMCs? more

According to my friend- AutoMobil engineer; there will not be any harm for vehicle engine due to Ethanol. Pollution will be reduced. - Dr. R A Joshi Mob.8849108729 On Monday, 29 August, 2022, 10:53:58 pm IST, Chandan Saha wrote: more  
I learn that on both counts, there are damages and disadvantages. Thus, the blending is perhaps being limited to optimal level. more  
Ethanol is being blended with Petrol in many countries. Of course, the engines have to be modified for better efficiency more  
The nise can reduce after removal of soot, dust. more  
My experience says, over a period of time, the blend of ethanol has affected performance of my car Santro ZipPlus October 2002 Model. Mileage is down and so is power. Also engine racing during start has increased. Idling is erratic. All of these has resulted in increased frequency of servicing like fuel injector cleaning, throttle body cleaning, fuel filter replacement. The automobile manufacturers are not geared up to meet with the requirements of Ethanol Blending could be because blending regulations come in after latest manufacturing technology has kicked in. I feel government should give a choice of selecting the fuel. Blended or Not Blended. more  
I also had the same experience. Govt. should keep an option of 5% blend or more at retail. That could save the old engine and not affecting the engine life. more
