You need to read threads instead of just asking questions. Look at post #7 in this thread. It is stated 10 to 20 times in this thread that you don't need higher octanes. And many good contributors spent a lot of their time explaining, in great detail, octane ratings, and when you may need higher octanes.

Able? Sure, won't improve performance but it won't hurt anything to run a tank of premium in it. Fine in a pinch but unless you're getting some kind of magical detergent only available in the highest grade gas then I wouldn't go out of my way or spend more to run 93 if 87 or even 89 were available.

Melvin hasn't logged in since 2018 so I doubt he'll get the message.
