I've always wondered if the horsepower gains are worth the inconvenience of hopping from Sunoco to Sunoco??

I always fill up 94 no matter what, it burns way cleaner with less crap in it

Exactly. On my tune they donít recommend I use anything but a 93+ octane if I like my motor.

With modern cars you do not get knock anymore as you would on an older car. If you run a lower Octane which may cause the motor to ping, or knock, the computer retards the timing instantaneaously and you're fine. The only negative effect is you do lose a little bit of power and efficiency. So in a pinch you could go with 91 for instance from a competitor.

Sunoco`s 94 octane, while being a higher octane, still contains 5%-10% ethanol. Whereas Shell`s V-Power 91 octane contains 0% ethanol.
