      Even if this works and produces denatured alcohol (unsuitable for consumption), it may be a good way to produce ethanol fuel.  So all may not be lost.  just my thoughts, go for it and see what happens.

      You may also want to be careful with what other compounds that may be created with the electrical elements that come in contact with the corrosive alcohol and hence recombined with unknown hydrocarbon materials. I personally know that stainless materials when combined with alcohols and electric currents can be eroded!

      Robert, You're talking about electrolysis of water to remove water from alcohol?  If you haven't tried this, you should just so you know what you're dealing with.  The process is painfully slow and the product is highly explosive.  We did this in 9th grade science class.Electrolysis of water video - youtube link I sell life insurance - ping me offline.
