What about using methanol injection to boost the effective octane of the 88 or 91 gas to 93? Granted, that would probably be a "later down the road" thing because I doubt there are any kits for a vehicle that is not even on dealer lots yet.

I thought about doing it with my 2013 GTI, but the one thing that worries me is something going wrong with the methanol pump and detonation causing my engine to go boom.

EDIT: I still may do it for the cooling effect as well as to prevent carbon build-up. I'll just run 93 octane with the injection kit!

Maybe I will buy a 2016 Mustang GT, maybe not...
