remaping for bioethahnol

hi guys
i have seen a land rover specialist who proposes to remap the FF ( 4.4 v8 petrol jaguar engine) for it can run bioethanol at 100%.
Have you heard anything about such modifiaction/remaping ?
any advice about that ?
thanks a lot Current:L322 V8 4.4 petrol

Doesn't bioethanol have reduced lubrication properties compared standard pump petrol ?
If it does, using 100% bioethanol could have a very bad effect on wear of valve stems / valve guides perhaps. Paul,

I believe ethanol destroys rubber fuel hoses.

Sorry what is the purpose of this? If it’s to reduce running costs wouldn’t lpg make more sense as tried and tested?
If it’s performance with the gains youd get a remap intake and exhaust would probably do a better job and not mess the engine up Current stable:

I think it may be more to do what fuel is available in Vogue16s location ? Paul,

here bioethanol costs 0.59€/litre so even if my FF is not my daily car , if i can run it with bioethanol without any issues for the car ..why not? Current:L322 V8 4.4 petrol

yes perhaps, but the cost for installing LPG is not the same.. Current:L322 V8 4.4 petrol

Ahh ok fair enough - well ultimately it’s up to you but lpg is pretty much tried and tested - bioethanol may be great but no one on head can really tell you I doubt... you may be pioneering something here! Current stable:
