Its listed as "boat fuel" at wawa. It cost $2.55 and I filled up she 93 v power at $2.63. Hoping Tom can come in and shed some insight on the tune factor.

That's funny that you ask because I just filled up with the vPower Nitro+ and was curious of the same question.

My question would be to whether or not it would have any negative effects to those of us running a 93 octane tune since I don't believe injected tuned the car with ethanol free fuel. Would it only benefit the car or would timing be a factor with here. I'd hate to mess with the afr by running E0 93 octane.

sailor Fun experiment at least, takes a couple tanks of each at least to get decent results (2nd and later tanks give more accurate numbers).

Usually remains a little more expensive after MPG improvements, but it's the cheapest power/driveability improvement you can make.

Yep I'm currently doing that now. I just got my Focus and I'm still on my first tank of premium after reading through this thread and everyone showed me the light. Definite improvement in throttle response and it doesn't bog down like it did on 87. So far I'm seeing about 2mpg improvement versus 87.
