Default "Chimney Ethanol" E100

Anyone tried this Stuff already ?

3 x 10 L Bio Alkohol Ethanol 100 % Kamin Brennstoff 30 Liter | eBay

Description sounds nice and says it's 100% Ethanol supposedly without any additives (I'm not really sure about that)

What do you think is this useable as fuel in Cars ?
I know in South America People drive e100 but is this the same Stuff ?

You can get 30liters for around 47 $ with free shipping
It's 1,40Euro/1l ,like 95 super in Europe
I know you need a bigger amount ,but i will not use it every day so the Price doesn't matter that much
E85 is 0.90- 1,30 $ a liter in Germany

We are tuning my Ms in a few Weeks ,once the Injectors arrive ,and i will go flexfuel ,so i was thinking about a E100 Map instead of a E85 Map
There aren't so many E85 Station anyway where i live.

Edit : should be the same like this :

I thought south america ran E95. Getting absolutely 100 percent pure ethanol is actually a pain in the *** without special distillation techniques IIRC.

The Description says it was 96,6% Ethanol and they dehydrate it.

There are several Threads about "industrial" e100 in Germany but it seems that no one wants to try it first

I have considered blending my own blend of ethanol and racing fuel to make a racing only E85.

"Dry" Ethanol have many uses, one is flushing out water from air controlled brakes and other pnumatic systems. I't pretty good at taking up water down to 95% and then take the water with it when evaporating.
Diluting it to make Schnaps works quite well too

Buying any fuel in (certified) cans gives you a much better chance of getting what you pay for.

Some systems would probably live longer with E85 than E100 (both with about 0-5% water), but there must be knowledge to harvest from Brazil etc.

We could never get E100 in the states, its got to have at least some poison added to it to make it E98 to avoid being treated as liquor for tax and regulator purposes.
