    NO need for premium fuel until you start running more boost and more RPM.

    It could actually slow you down running to much octane.
    Higher octane fuels burn slower and cooler than their lower rated counterparts which is against most peoples ideas about fuel.

    So if you don't need the higher rated fuel don't run it.
