ViperThreat Older cars (2000 ish) had to be retuned to see any benefit from a change in octane in fuel. Im not sure if the new cars are programmed to automatically recognize the changed fuel and retune themselves to fit. In most cases, using a higher-octane than what is recommended can actually cause a loss in performance.

This is not true it does not say anywhere using higher octane will benefit performance I have a 2013 and I can find it in the manual I assumed it would since all previous models did

Performance =/= fuel economy. There have been contradictory reports from members about whether or not they get better fuel economy as well, but the higher octane gas will technically give you a little more power, hence the "improved performance" aspect.

I also moved you to the MK3 sections since your not having a technical problem.
