To rebuild or not to rebuild?

I have a 1989 YJ, 6 cylinder. Body in great shape , but my mechanic tells me the engine and transmission are badly in need of a re-build. An estimate he's given me us $4,000 to $4,500, but he's advising me against it. He says with the pending new reformulation of gasoline (increasing the amount of ethanol), my engine probably won't run very well, even after it's re-built.

Any ideas? Is he right? I hate the thought of giving this vehicle up.
