too much to even bother doing it. all the fuel lines and fuel tank must be converted to different materials because the metal and rubber lines will rust/swell due to the content of the ethanol. compression of the motor will affect the burn of the gas and so many other factors. dont even bother. to be honest. you pay less for ethanol, but gallon for gallon it gets less mileage than gasoline, so there isnt any benefit at all really.

He's exactly right. Don't forget needing new heads with hardened valves and seats to hold up to the ethanol.
