I think that is one of the reasons. The other reason is water is cheaper. ;)
To answer the other question about Alcohol kits. The Aquamist system is
designed to run either water or Methanol. If you are going for the most
power I was told at one point to run straight methanol.
I've been squirting Bug Juice for the last two years. It's basically just
water, methanol and a little detergant and color. Benefit is that it
doesn't freeze so I don't have to drain it. :)
