I built racing engines in the "60 and learned a lot about fuels in engineering school. Gasoline is made up from two fuels {Octane & Septane or Heptane) combined with @4% additives that are mostly detergents. The difference is, 91 Octane molecules contain a chain of eight carbon atoms and Septane contains a chain of seven. 91 Octane Gasoline is 91% Octane, 4% Septane, and 5% additives. 87 Octane Gasoline just replaces 4% Octane with Septane and combusts at a slightly lower temperature, but saves the consumer at least 10% in cost. They contain the same number of carbon atoms by volume (so the same amount of energy) and theoretically produce the same fuel economy. If your engine was designed for 91 Octane, 87 will reduce economy slightly, but if your car specifies 87 Octane, 91 will not improve economy.
