If so what vehicle do you fill up with 89 Octane and for what reason?

I drive a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am SE SEdan with a 4-cylinder engine. Since I started putting 89 Octane (mid-grade) gas, the car has a little more pep and gets on average two more MPG.

Don't see any reason to pay any more than I have to.

I drive a Pruis (not for looks or smugness - only because of the sheer miles I drive). Toyota recommends to use only 87 octane for this vehicle and my wife's van. I'm not opposed to putting in higher octane, but neither vehicle seem to be positively affected by spending the extra money.
