A lot of "those" guys buy industrial windshield washer fluid (which is basically a mix of methanol and water) I would estimate they would pay about the same rate for your ethanol mix. Not really sure though, you would have to find out if anyone nearby is into that and is willing to have a steady supply of it.

The additives that are washed out likely do absolutely nothing to help or detriment your engine, they do however likely affect oxygenation and specific pollution levels.
