A process for converting ethanol to gasoline-boiling-range hydrocarbons by contact in the vapor phase at dehydrating temperature with a bifunctional zeolite catalyst in the presence of an equimolar proportion of water. The catalyst induces simultaneous dehydration of the ethanol to reactive intermediates and recombination to a spectrum of hydrocarbons in the C.sub.1 to C.sub.10 range. Higher and lower proportions of water lead to higher yields of gaseous hydrocarbons.
