Default High Octane for NHC?

Hi. Well, I recently purchased a NHC Automatic(CVT)..
On asking the company about Higher Grade Octane fuels for NHC,they advise NOT to use themand only use normal Unleaded fuel,since the higher grade fuels contain more of Carbon,which is left behind in the engine during fuel combustion,and will lead to engine problems..
On the other hand,AutoCarIndia claim higher octane (Speed Petrol) will surely give a better fuel mileage in NHC..
Wanted to know your views/thoughts/comments on what is true about it..
Thanks a lot,
Suraj

I was told not to use any thing other than the normal pertol and also advised not to use Mobil 1..

They said that the DSI was modified to deliver best with the normal Pertol/Oil...

Any comments??

Well even o was told the same and i used normal only until i read last months ACI which said about higher octance. So i tanked up once on extra premium 91 octane and the car felt better under accleration as well as pick up. Slighly better though. FE i didnot calculate.

Normal fuel to me is 91 oct, nothing below that. the 87 oct brand sucks big time.
