Delivering ethanol is a problem, also. It scavenges water, so if there's any water in a pipeline, the ethanol isn't any good. So no companies use pipelines to deliver ethanol. All ethanol has to be delivered in tanker trucks or railroad tankers. That type of delivery is expensive.

Right you are. Which is also why MTBE is such a problem in the environment -- it is preferentially miscible in water so that MTBE in gasoline from a service station fuel leak will move into groundwater much as your favorite bourbon disperses in water in your before-dinner drink.
