Some oil companies offer high octane (ultra-premium) unleaded petrol of 98 octane, compared with standard unleaded at 91 octane and premium unleaded at 96. There is no advantage in using high octane fuel unless your vehicle's engine management system is designed to adjust to take advantage of the higher octane. If in doubt, check your vehicle handbook.

Even if the engine does adjust for the higher octane, the maximum advantage is generally around one per cent increase in engine power (or reduction in fuel consumption) per octane number. Unless the price of the higher octane fuel is less in cents per litre than the difference between the fuels in octane numbers, it is probably not economically worth your while using the higher octane.

I got this of that site,very interesting.
