Gas Question?

Hey sorry for the basic question, and if its in the wrong forum feel free to move it mods.

Anyway what i was wondering, is if It would help the engine at all on a 21" if I used higher octane fuel for a few tanks? Ive read some people using it on the larger mowers, but will it hurt a smaller engine?

I have an extra 5 gallon container with mid grade (my mistake) and was hoping to use it up on the 3 21s. Engines are all 6.5

Last 2 mows of the season little gum-out in tank helps carb. If engine is running fine buy the cheapest! No problem!
