So my inclination is to believe the ACN91 tune has a little less boost and/or timing than the regular 91 tunes, to prevent excess heat on the engine oil which is slowly degrading due to the fuel detergents.
It meets the requirements of being 91 octane (maybe) by combing RON and MON in a way that's inferior to other non ACN 91 fuels. The amount of knock Nezil was getting on the stock BMW M2 tune on ACN 91 was disturbing.
