Just for the record, that's a waste of money.  Your engine is designed for 87 octane, and anything above that accomplishes nothing aside from driving up the value of my Exxon/Mobil stock.  Thoughtful of you, but not necessary.  :-)

Here, again, is a link to the gasoline FAQ:
http://www.faqs.org/faqs/autos/gasoline-faq/part3/

...and a relevant quote from the FAQ:
If you use a fuel with an 
octane rating higher than what the engine can use, you are just wasting 
money by paying for octane that you can not utilise.
[...]
If your vehicle does not have a knock sensor, then using a fuel with an 
octane rating significantly below the octane requirement of the engine means 
that the little men with hammers will gleefully pummel your engine to pieces.
