Phase separation is an ethanol-water mixture that sits at the bottom of a tank of ethanol blended gasoline. It can cause damage to cars if it enters the fueling system. The ethanol-water mixture is very corrosive and can cause damage to the petroleum infrastructure of a gas station.

Phase separation occurs when water enters an underground storage tank. Some of the water will be suspended in the fuel, binding to the ethanol. The rest of the water will fall to the bottom of the tank, pulling ethanol with it. Over time, this ethanol-water mixture will continue to pull more ethanol from the fuel. It is important to note that you will never have pure water sitting at the bottom of a tank of ethanol-blended gasoline.
