optimal grade of gas to use

Is it okay I use the midgrade gas as opposed to regular? It seems that the car drives slightly better and doesn't shudder as much?

am i being paranoid? thx

For us, 89 octane has been netting anywhere from 230-280 miles to the tank versus 200-220 with 87 octane. Almost all of our driving is under ten miles both ways and in city traffic.
