Apparently they don't include high performance cars in their study.

Must be some kind of marketing scheme.

To me, it doesn't matter. BMW says premium. I am no way in hell ever running 87 octane from a generic, no name gas station. You CAN'T PAY ME to do that. Be it for peace of mind, thats fine. I'll pay 20 bucks extra for peace of mind a month, I can afford it.
Don't think you heard her correctly. Before she said that "premium gas won't do a thing for you car except drain your wallet" she said if your car's manual says you car requires 87 octane which is about 95% of all cars out there and you decide to use premium will drain your wallet. If you think about, she's right.
