Yes! It is okay to use91 octane in your Subaru BRZ.
Performance vehicles like your BRZ require higher-grade fuel. It won’t hurt your engine if you use a higher grade than recommended (like 95 in an engine designed for 91).
However, you should never go below the recommended grade. In your BRZ, you should not use regular (87) or mid-grade (89-90) fuel.
If you ever forget, check the decal inside your fuel lid. It should indicate the appropriate fuel type for your vehicle.
Taking care of your vehicle using the appropriate fuel type is a great way to be a responsible car owner. The other important part of responsible car ownership is car insurance situation.
