I have a general materials question. Are there any corrosion concerns with aluminum or stainless if you run fuel? I am running run gas class now but also want to be able to switch to methanol or E85 in the future. In my case it's for a fuel rail but I figure it applies to fuel tanks as well.

Methanol is corrosive to aluminum. Hard anodizing is used to protect aluminum parts from methanol. I know nothing about E85.

When I was a kid I put a dent in my dirt bikes tank so I borrowed my uncle's spray gun, had the paint shop mix up the Suzuki yellow
and bought new factory decals.
I spent about a week polishing out the orange peel. When done the tank looked like new.
We go to the races and I gassed up with Methanol but I spilled some on the paint.
