If anybody is wondering you can test for ethanol you don't have to guess. You just get a graduated cylinder with clear markings basically and dump a bit of water on the gas. The ethanol will separate out and join the water at the bottom and you can do the math and see the percent. We get E10 year round here.
The above is why old boats ran E0. Sometimes since the ethanol boost would fall out with the water in the gas tank issue and the motors wouldn't have enough octane left in the gas to run without pinging. The new ones can pretty much run on piss though they are pretty good at pulling timing.
