but if it's used to 95 is there not slight difference in timing required?...going slightly off topic here but in my car tuning days when I used a 99 octane fuel for 1/4 mile and power runs the engine wouldn't benefit until it "learnt" the new fuel.

I spent a day testing this at Dastek rolling road in Fife. Went standalone management in the end, granted that was nearly 20yrs ago... looking back it was all madness, I cringe to think how much I spent on fuel/testing/Tyres and clutches.

There is a place on this planet for all of Gods creatures.........right next to my tatties and gravy.

I wouldn't suggest you could get a performance increase, though you might. You will however get the benefits of ethanol free fuel.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

You pays your money and take your chance
I know a chap that looks after a fleet of 1200 cars from ford fiestas to high end super cars like Ferrari and they only use BP or Shell because of all the problems they had using supermarket fuels
