93 octane without tune

So I'm about to hit E on gas and I bought a tuner last week and should be here Wednesday and I went with 93 for every tune .. now my question is should I fill up with 93 now to get it thru my system that way when I upload the tunes I don't have to worry about mixing a little 87 with 93 or will running 93 b4 the tune hurt the motor?

I always fill up on 93 even though I know with a stock tune 87 will be ok. One thing I always worry about is shady gas stations putting 87 in all the pumps. Numerous places in around me have been busted and they aren't all mom/pop stations either. Make sure to use a station you trust.

With my Cobra tuned for 93 I ALWAYS saved my receipts at gas stations when I filled it up. Not sure what I could do if I blew my motor due to 87 in there but its a start if you have a record.
