But If I were you I would really use atleast 91.
LOL You would think 8 points meant 8 points, that'* quite the false statement then.
You're reading too far into it.
If it says it increases your octane 8 points then it will take your 87 octane and make it 87.8 octane. The gas can vary in octane more than that anyways so the stuff is pretty much useless.
I have heard auto experts both say no matter and others like many here say you must use it.
Those auto experts are probably talking about cars that don't require premium. Some people think it will help those cars and in most conditions it will not. Now if your car requires premium, the manufacturer isn't going to say it requires premium for the hell of it. The car needs premium.
