Ethanol is actually pretty evil stuff on an engine. I will NOT run it in any of my small motors like weed whacker a, chain saws etc. It kills them by attracting moisture

I was just in Walmart grabbing some lunch and in the front of the store was a large display of heet fuel additive and other winter essentials.
The temp here in northern Indiana is supposed to get pretty damn low. Like minus 15.
Now I remember as a kid in the 80s my dad putting heet in our cars when it got super cold. He said it kept water condensation under control.
Made since to me.
Now today I saw cart after cart of this crap in the store and I wondered why.
Our gas here has 10% ethanol added at the pump.
Alcohol absorbs moisture so why are people adding more alcohol to their tanks?
I just dont get it.
Am I missing something?
90-100 days Gasoline Expiration - Ethanol Blend Fuels Have a Short Shelf Life. An Alcohol Fuel Test Kit will give you the data you need to keep engines safe with E10 gasoline. E10 Gas has a shelf life of only 3 months. Ethanol alcohol fuel blends have a shelf life of only 90-100 days, under ideal environmental conditions.
