You're trolling, right? Add water to gasoline in order to 'remove' the ethanol? You realize that that's not at all how that works, right?

Yes it does -- try it. I've been doing it for years to make gas for my OPE.

Here is a thread on it: Removing water from E10 gasoline

Seems legit. Adding water causes separation. Ethinol and water attract to each other. Drain the separation into a container. Leaving pure gas.

Seems like a lot of work to have pure fuel. Ethanol is actually a decent cleaner but doesn't store well. If you really need fuel without ethanol why not go the route of finding a pure fuel stations near you? I am sure there is some search capability with your zip code to find none ethanol fuel stations. Personally I wouldn't do this. Sounds like half [removed] chemistry experiment.

Don't forget, you're dropping the octane by doing this.

None within 100 miles of me.

Do you run an octane booster with it? I've read it drops about 3 points. Since we have 93 here 90 octane wouldn't be bad.

I've wanted to try this for some time but want some way to confirm the octane level afterwards.

I would try it with high octane. I've been told it lowers the octane by 3 points or so.

I've done it and brought it up on here months ago. I used 93 octane. It's messy and a hassle.

I've done this. Doesn't take much water to get the ethanol to separate out.

Helps to have the proper type container to do this with as there will be some waste.

I use a plastic 1000ml graduated cylinder.

I bought a Mr. Funnel years ago.
http://www.mrfunnel.com/Mr._Funnel/Home.html

The screen in it is sooo fine, gas passes thru it but not water.

To check its effectiveness, you purposely pour water into it and none should come out.

Now I know what your thinking, will it filter out the alcohol from the gas? ...... NO
