I don't understand why so many people have a hard time wrapping their heads around VVT.

You mean the part that states; "Premium fuel will provide improved performance"?

I'm staying out of this one. All I know is since I got my car 11,500 and 10.5 months ago I've only for the most part used E0 91 octane. If E0 isn't available I just use 87 - which is rare. If I have to use 87 I always notice a decrease in fuel economy and SOTP performance.
