When you get down to the basics of fuel and I don't care what fuel you are talking about: wood, gasoline, diesel, ethanol, white lightning, Ever-clear, etc. The amount of energy available is based on the amount of BTU's that are available from a given quantity of fuel. A BTU is based on the amount of fuel needed to raise a quantity of water 1 degree C. The exact process is not necessary here.

Ethanol has less BTU's available per gallon of fuel when compared to gasoline. Your fuel mileage will be less when running a mixture or pure ethanol. I'm not a chemical or oil engineer but these are basic facts. Remember this basic law of physics. Energy can be neither created nor destroyed merely changed from one form to another. We are converting heat energy stored in the fuel into motion with a lot of wasted heat energy along the way.

Today's computer controlled fuel systems do a great job. They can maintain the 14.7 : 1 air fuel ratio until the cows come home and we benefit with clean engines, very low emissions and decent fuel economy. If you want better fuel economy only go down hills.
