It doesn't. Best it can do is keep the water saturated ethanol in suspension so it doesn't separate out with water/ethanol on the bottom (you can shake the container and do the same thing) but you're still burning that crap and it's still corrosive. Besides, if it has phase separated it needs to be discarded. No matter what the snake oil guys claim, there is no way to remove ethanol once it is mixed with gasoline.

Best question I've ever heard regarding all those claims the additives make.
You know the answer.

If you can get non-ethanol, just use that. Look here for non-ethanol gas stations:
puregas.org.

Guys! may want to look at a product ehto sheild and engine energy, also diesel mechanic in a bottle by BC3. Will be a game changer for all of ya'll. Have used in shop for about 4 to 5 yrs. with 87 octane gas no need for high ocatane. Take a look for yourselves and do some testing. The WOW factor will set in after that. Try carbon test, or add water directly to etho sheild on bottum of old coke can and then light. Try your products the same way make sure to stand way back.Theses guys are way ahead of everything else on the market,so much almost every two cycle company and engine comany has tried to buy them. Take a look!

Well, OK. Do you have any actual scientific evidence to back up your claims or are you just a spammer for some snake oil?
