I have a flex fuel ranger.
I've run Ethanol through my truck several times, never really liked the MPG difference. I noticed that it goes quicker than Petrol.
I've heard that Ethanol burns hotter than regular fuel, which makes it burn quicker.

I was wondering, since it burns hotter, does it therefore clear carbon and deposits in your engine from used oil and sludge?

I normally put SeaFoam in with my oil for 100 miles every 9,000 miles before an oil change to clear out said sludge and deposits... would doing this with Ethanol help? Make no difference? Do nothing at all?

Just curious.
