yeah a few cars out there are mapped better for higher octane altho they can knock back the timing when using 95 octane
dramatic drop in power on turbo cars such as scoobys and evos when using 95 octane, my old m3 hated the lower octanes and ran really lumpy
luckily newer cars have dual map settings which can cope with a varied range
if u get a chance try it with tescos 99ron and you'll see a sharper throttle response
