Do not pay attention to what 1999GXE1.6 wrote about octane, because he got it wrong except for 2).

Octane has NO bearing on fuel burn speed.

Lower octane does NOT cause deposit build-up.

In and of itself, octane won't affect acceleration. You must alter engine operating parameters for that.

Octane boosters are an EXPENSIVE way to get octane boost; it takes lots of it per tankful.

Gas mileage is unaffected by fuel octane UNLESS standard operating conditions cause the ECU to retard timing. If the engine doesn't knock on 87 octane, you won't get better mileage just by using higher octane fuel.

You may never hear light detnation, but heavy detonation is unmistakable clattering, sort of like the HLA clatter on startup after changing oil.
