Some stations do temperature compensate, others do not.

The Ethanol does keep water out of the tanks, by absorbing it. (You end up paying for the water!)

There is a test to see how much Ethanol is in your fuel, It is mentioned in motorcycle manuals, and I cannot remember it at this time. (Something about how much water is absorbed by the fuel.)

got to think, in a 5000 gallon tank, im sure the 500 gallons of ethanol would have no issues dealing with 20 gallons of water

this is a tricky one. e 10 fuel from my experience sucks. gotta read the pump. see what it is really. and not just that octane rating. that does vary. thats why they have the mathematicle equation on most pumps. all fuel is so not created equal. if using an e 10 fuel, add some startron or the blue stabil to your tank when you fill up. in my bikes i notice huge differences. as for my truck, its minor and good just to do so often. i have friends that do fuel blending here and jersey and i do some work for the guys at a huge refinery wich i cant say wich one.
