Wouldn't use a 93 containing ethanol over 91 v-power.

You can potentially have carbon build up in the cylinders over time even though it's not a DI system.

No one has mentioned this, so I'm wondering if this is normal with 94:

I switched from Esso's 91 to Petro's 94. What I noticed right away was that on startup, the engine would always turn an extra bit before starting. After a couple months, I switched back to the 91 and the engine would start a lot quicker.

Yeah I was thinking this. Stuff is pretty cheap and proven to work.

I don't think it would be a bad idea, other than the aggravation of having to add a bottle each tank.
