Ugh.  That damage may well have been caused by ethanol, but I'm a born 
skeptic with a little scientific training.  Without a control sample you 
can't prove the damage was caused by ethanol (but again, it may well 
have been).  I just changed out a set in my HD8s that had been in over 
25 years and all I saw was some tiny cracking, and I live in California 
and I think we've had gasahol longer than most states.

Some of that damage looks mechanical to me; it could simply be defective 
parts.  I would hope manufacturers are making parts from 
ethanol-resistant rubber, because I just put in a new set that look just 
like those.
