DanMan or someone can probably elaborate more eloquently, but some engines REQUIRE the higher octane fuel to run well -- the Prius' engine is not designed that way. I was also looking at the Acura RSX Type S and one reason I didn't go that way was the need for high octane fuel. It has something to do with high-HP gas engines and how they run.
