I've noticed that in comparison structure as.. as.., in my textbook, after the first as goes an adverb to compare and only after it goes additional information, like:

You don't know as much about cars as I do.

So the question is, would this be correct:

You don't know about cars as much as I do.

    The "optional" adverbial element about cars can go before, within, or after the construction as much as X, so there's also the third sequence **You don't know as much as I do about cars. – FumbleFingers Nov 16 '19 at 19:04

Correct:

You don't know as much about cars as I do.

You don't know as much as I do about cars.

I would consider the other sentence (below) to be incorrect. If I'm wrong and it's technically correct, it's definitely awkward and strikes me as something that a non-native English speaker might say:

You don't know about cars as much as I do.

Instead, you could probably say:

You don't know about cars like I do.
