Burning alcohol? Yes. Everclear is quite a bit more expensive but it's worth it to me. Methanol is really nasty stuff. I use it for testing stoves as I'm not sitting around them when I do so I'm not worried about breathing the fumes. But in camp, I do sometimes sit near the stove or even under the tarp while I cook. And I don't want to breathe methanol fumes of any kind no matter how small the amount.
