Something's wrong w/ your car if you can't run 87 oct. w/o it knocking.
My car runs perfectly fine on regular gas 87 oct.

i think you're right w/ suspecting that your knock sensor is not working right.
It's supposed to detect knock and send a signal to the computer so the computer can retard the ignition to prevent knocking.
