With enough in the oil pan it could disrupt lubrication of the bearings. In the tank it could thin out the fuel. Otherwise, it just makes the engine smell funny.

I know that sugar damages a car motor badly. I also know that vinegar is made out of grapes and in the process of making vinegar sugar is also contained in vinegar. I think maybe the acidity may be good for the motor, but mainly its the sugar who will harm it
