Running out of fuel in the cut and idling to run out are different scenarios, but hey everyone has run out under full load too and not hurt things. +1 on the comments that ethanol by itself, dissolved, is not the monster aothough it becomes a scapegoat.. It is when the extra water causes separation that problems start. that and being too lean already, which a 15% blend instead of 10% makes even leaner. I am thankful to be near lakes and boating and street rods, so can get non oxy for small stuff.
