For those with 2.5 engines I was wondering if anybody feels like like it performs better with lower grade fuel compared with the higher octane? Or am I crazy?

i did i little experiment and tried it out ..

i waited for the E light to come on and i put in half a tank worth of 87 (lowest octane) and i drove around until the E light came on again and i put in 93 (highest octane) ... now i didnt feel a difference performance wise .. but call me crazy the car felt like it shifted smoother with the 93 octane .. even though i know it probably has nothing to do with the transmission on an automatic shifting ... and also when i let off the gas with the 93 octane the speedometer tack would always keep rising for about another 5 mph ... which consistently happened .. idk .. weird but thats just my experience iwth it ..
