^This. But this is the case because assuming 93 octane fuel allows for more aggressive tune settings.

Running 93 oct on a 91 oct tune should not yield tangible more power, i.e. it is all about minimum rating: once met, the engine is happy. Go over it, it doesn't go much happier...but go under it...
