No. There is no need and no purpose to the snake oil that some people try to sell. There is just risk, cost and no benefit.

Octane ratings has nothing to do with the enerrgy contained in the fuel. The wikipedia article is well written. Here is a key sentence:

"Octane ratings are not indicators of the energy content of fuels. It is only a measure of the fuel's tendency to burn in a controlled manner, rather than exploding in an uncontrolled manner."
