Is 89 octane gas worth it for my car?
Unless your vehicle specifically requires premium (i.e. a high compression engine or turbocharged or supercharged), there really is no benefit in running the higher octane so save your money. 89 octane is more mid-grade rather than premium and really only serves the purpose of suckering people into thinking their car will run better with it.

Do police motorcycles use 87 octane gas?
Using lower than recommended octane wont harm a modern engine but it will compromise performance. Police motorcycles only use premium gasoline. So, I assume there is really a need for it. Most cars will specify regular (87 octane) fuel, and will run best on it. If premium fuel is recommended, it usually says so on the gas gauge.
