  3. Improve Audio — Advice Needed

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V

  9. Higher octane gas?

    Performance Modifications
    Does higher octane gas improve performance AND gas mileage? If so, does the increase in fuel efficiency offset the increase in price per gallon? I'm really interested to see if anyone has done any research regarding this.
