I am trying to build an ethanol fireplace; is there any way to reduce the air clearance? I will have 3 openings in front, left, and right.
Unfortunately, there is no nationally accepted method for reducing clearances with any ethanol burner, so the only option would be to seek guidance from your local code office.

Is there an advantage of ethanol over gel?
While not one and the same, ethanol units and gel fuel models are very similar. There is no clear advantage or disadvantage to one over the other. A key consideration for you would be the access and pricing of local denatured alcohol (for ethanol models) or the appropriate gel fuel canisters for the specific gel model.

Bioethanol Fireplaces are closer to a wood-burning fireplace than a gas fireplace. This is because ethanol fireplaces need to have fuel placed within them for them to burn. These fireplaces utilize Bio Fuel which produces no harmful gases, smoke, ashes or soot.
Often, ethanol fireplaces are freestanding and easy to move from room to room, allowing you to take your fireplace with your family if you were to move or simply to enjoy your fireplace in any room in your home.
