Fuel Octane, Choosing The Wrong Octane Will Cost You | What Could Be GreenerCarbon buildup and octane rating | Mechanical /Maintenance Forum | Bob Is The Oil GuyWhat will happen if I use higher octane gas than I’m supposed to?
A few things. For one, you will be wasting a huge amount of money paying for high octane gasoline. Second, your car will not run correctly, whether you notice it or not. Higher octane fuel requires more heat and more precision to burn correctly. If your car is designed to burn 87, it will not burn 93 correctly. Third, your gas mileage will suffer. The inability of your engine to burn the higher octane gas correctly will cause your engine to produce less power and thus will require more fuel to perform at the same level.
People here talk about using higher than rated octane causing carbon build up.

The 1.4L Turbo has always been calibrated to run 87 octane since the start. It has only a small boost to get typical performance of a larger 4-banger. Considering the Regal GS’s 2.0L can put out 260HP, wouldn’t you think 1.4L turbo can do a little more if it was tuned more aggressively with 91 octane???
I don’t know what’s happening to the AC, but if it’s an ECO model, maybe it’s doing what it’s supposed to do: slow down AC, not turn off completely.
I know many vehicles shut down AC when temps are high to prevent engine damage, or when the accelerator is floored demanding peak acceleration
With my Si, running 93 octane and all my mods, I get about 25-28 mpg mixed city highway. Most roads are about 35-45 mph with stoplights.

Dealerships are basically stealerships and hate doing warranty. Take it to a known-good-honest-competent Honda mech and have him check things or do it yourself if you have the data and knowledge.
That's actually a terrible link. That article is mostly incorrect/outdated. Couldn't find a date when it was written.
