You're generalizing and making a bad assumption. I just had a relative complain about the same thing in her '07 CRV. She was using 87 and started experiencing starting problems. The vehicle was under warranty, she took it back and the technicians couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. Their computer was saying that no problems had been recorded. They did however offer advice about the fuel... imagine that.

Hey look, it's not that big of a deal. If you want to put that crap in your engine-- go ahead.
