super unleaded - worth it?

I am staying n/a - just a cai,1.8lcam,and 421 header.
Is there any REAL benefit to paying for super unleaded vs mid vs cheap?

I got used to using super unleaded when I had really hp v8's as a kid because of ping.

Just curious if I'm throwing away money.

I don't see it as much with my accent but i know with my nissan with a 2.4ltre it got better gas milage off higher octane. My accent seems to have more peep with Mid... I know C&D did a dyno/0-60runs with low and super.. it seemed to vary from car to car. The one that showed the most dislike for cheap stuff was a Saab Turbo and the one that cared the least was a Dodge v8.
