So the labs say aluminun is corroded by ethanol. But first hand use in our hobby reports minimal to nonexistant corrosion. At that, the labs modeling car parts say the corrosion is formed by a reaction between ethanol and aluminum, forming aluminum ethoxide before drying. BP for aluminum ethoxide? 320ºc, im not concerned, but we all choose for ourselves....On Nov 21, 2013 6:56 PM, "Wes" <yhetti@...> wrote:This has been well studied because of car engines.

Matt - what evidence do you have of this ? What is formed ?
