EcoBoost and Fuel Ethanol Content

I don't think I've seen any threads on this out there so here it goes. How well do the EcoBoost motors perform (start easily, run well with no missing at idle or hesitation under load) using the E10 gas that seems to be everywhere these days?

The reason I'm asking is that my 1999 5.4L Triton and 2003 Honda Odyssey start and run MUCH BETTER on 100% non-ethanol gasoline. Otherwise, both are hard to start and idle poorly.

Any experiences out there with E10 gas?

Almost all gas these days is E10.

No would doubt there'd be any difference.
