Don't waste you money. it's not needed and you'd only run slower amd mess up your O2 sensors.

lx mike is right - you'd only want to run higher octane if the car was tuned for it. There is no benefit otherwise. Higher octane is just harder/slower to burn so it allows you to run more timing and leaner mixtures.
