Biofuel threat to older Alfas??

Not sure if it's been posted on here yet (in which case I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings), but it would appear that only the latest generations of Alfa models will cope with the increasing levels of bioethanol that will coming to our pumps:

I don't know how long it will take to kill an engine or what the availability of non-bio alternatives will be but looks like we'd better enjoy our 156s while we still can...
