I think if that is what they meant to say they would have written just as you did, but they didn't. To me it is two separate thoughts, Don't use less than 87 octane, and they told you where that might be encountered, and premium fuel will provide an increase in performance. Simple. Plus my experience using shell V-Power has shown me, that just as in the video, oh yea, did anyone watch the video, I am getting an increase in performance using premium.
