You know i noticed in Europe on 95 octane i could get slightly better consumption results than here on 91.
On 95oct i would average 14.5/100km city and highway mixed, but than again could be different gearing than here.
Europe and NA use two different octane measurement conventions. 95 RON = 91 AKI if I recall correctly.

Ive noticed that one my other vehicles. 87 vs 91 at the end i get more mileage out of 91. I believe 91 is more stable than 87 and takes longer to burn. Similarly 95 would take longer than 91 and hence the better mileage.

My Honda Helix (250cc HUGE scrooter from the UK) will not run on anything lowe than 91, 89 results in it starting but never able to idle.

The higher the octane the more stable the fuel, better consumption (and better engine).

15.9 or 16.1 liters per 100km 89 or 91 fuel. I pumped 91 for the price of 87 couple days ago and i felt like im saving gas.

8.8-9.7l/100 km, car needs a tuneup and valve adjustment. Mainly highway, but with a decent amount of stop-and-go too.
If I'm careful on the highway (~110 kph, no wind, no traffic to contend with) I can get about 6.9l/100 km.

Guess I should be thankful with the M5's 65L tank. Just seeing triple digit fill ups makes me cringe. It just feels wrong, lol.
