higher octane?

Will higher octane like 91 or 89 make your car perform better? I dont have a tune for it but just curious.

No higher octane more than 89 on a car really doesn't do much unless it's tuned for it. Some cars if they have high miles ect or are slightly older will runn better with 89 than 87 due to the ethanol in gas giving a false octane reading. I used to have a 88 beretta gtu and when I ran 87 octane I would gun it it would start to take off then die and stall right out but when I ran 89 octane it ran like a raped ape

Unless your car has really high miles and knocks or pings due to fuel like my 00 v6 did
