Sunoco always did that. Don't know how old you are, but I remember as a kid (I'm in my mid 30's) Sunoco had this dial on the nozzle to select your "special blend" My grandfather used to think that the dial did nothing, that it was just marketing.

The Harley I used to have required 91 or it would ping real bad on hot days, after sitting in traffic, or if I didn't have enough rpms.

I never thought much about this perceived problem myself. A 5 gallon tank made it largely moot, and I usually put in 4 gallons at a time. I can see how it might be a problem if it wasn't driven much and topped off often in a bike that had a higher compression.
