Actually you don't benefit from using gas with a higher octane rating than
your car requires. The best thing you can do is make sure it's running as

The only alcohol that should ever be added to a fuel system is
Methanol. Also known as Racing Alcohol. Using other types can result is
sever fuel system problems.
Some inbreeds and idiots add it for all sorts of reasons. Professions
will add it to clean out carbon build up in emissions systems, and to
lower NO levels.
methanol should never be put in any medern vehicle. It says that in
EVERY owners manual I've ever read. Many States ad Ethanol to the gas
at the pumps, and it will be labeled as such.
