Default Camry I4 + Supreme gaz = danger??

Hi! A few weeks ago, I read in a NG (I don't remember if it is this one, if
so, please accept my apologize to bring this issue back!) that cars that
toyota recommends to use regular fuel should not use supreme since the
octane is too high and the engine would not be able to burn it efficiently,
therefore could damage it in the long run.

Is this true? Should it not be true, I have a second question: is it
worthwhile to use supreme fuel (does it last longer, is it cleaner, etc.?)
or is it a waste of money?

thanks!!!!

Using higher octane fuel won't harm your engine, just your wallet,
assuming you're not getting detonation (knocking) on the lower octane
fuel in your country. In North America, 87 is fine. In Europe, 91-95.

4cyl engines are not capable of adjusting to higher octane gas the way
6cyl engines can. So using high octane gas in a 4cyl is just a waste of
money.

On 6cyl engines the computer can take advantage of the better
anti-knock property for better performance. But even these V6 engines
aren't powerful to begin with, so it's not worth it either.

I would save the high octane gas for engines capable of 80-100+
horsepower per liter. An occasional Chevron Techron cleaner every
10,000 miles is cheaper. 4 cans for $10 at Costco.
