I never found any accurate report about the mileage decrease a Suzuki Celerio registered in Uruguay could get in Brazil, where the ethanol content in gasoline varies from 22 to 27%. But a few years ago when I used to go to Uruguay more often, people who lived in the Uruguayan cities at the border often filled-up their cars in Brazil when the exchange rate was favorable, and everytime I had a talk with some Uruguayan (or doble-chapa with both Brazilian and Uruguayan citizenship) who had a car registered in Uruguay, either there or in Porto Alegre where I used to see a handful of Suzukis and Chinese trucks (fitted most often with a copy of the Mitsubishi 4G64 engine) with Uruguayan plates, they said the ethanol content was not an issue regarding long-term reliability of the vehicles.
