What do you propose for a more advanced design? What kind of fuel economy could be had for an engine designed to run only E85+?

We don't even have access to E85 in this part of the country.

The only way I'd be interested in high ethanol content fuel is if it's cheaper per mile than gasoline. Can an engine be engineered to deliver more miles per dollar on unsubsidized corn ethanol than gasoline?
