  gasohol on Encyclopedia.com
Gasohol has higher octane, or antiknock, properties than gasoline and burns more slowly, coolly, and completely, resulting in reduced emissions of some pollutants, but it also vaporizes more readily, potentially aggravating ozone pollution in warm weather.
Methanol-based gasohol is also expensive to produce and is toxic and corrosive, and its emissions produce cancer-causing formaldehyde.
Gasohol with 91 octane is in the pipeline in Thailand.

Gasohol; alcohol-based ethers The proposed regulations provide that alcohol (that is, alcohol that is not produced from petroleum, natural gas, or coal (including peat)) used to produce ethers such as ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE) or methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) is treated as alcohol for purposes of the reduced tax rates for gasohol.
For example, a refiner that removes one million gallons of gasohol from its refinery for bulk shipment to a terminal could designate any one million gallons of gasoline that is removed at the terminal rack as gasohol, regardless of the actual alcohol-based ether content of the gasoline.

 Enhanced migration of gasohol fuels in clay soils and sediments -- Stallard et al. 3 (1): 45 -- Environmental and ...
In the reported research, the migration of gasoline-alcohol fuel mixtures (gasohol) through consolidated clay was examined.
Increased hydraulic conductivity of the clay in the presence of gasohol is hypothesized to be due to the collapse of the clay's pores thereby creating larger pores.
Increasing pore diameter decreases the capillary pressure needed for the gasohol to replace water and allows gasohol to migrate through the clay.
