Creative, but untrue. Eco does not run a different A/F map, it merely changes the foot feed response. All modern cars employ an A/F map which minimizes fuel consumption except at WOT where the map goes rich.

As a separate matter, AKI 89 is fine for the engine under all circumstances. Its use does not place the engine on the verge of self-destruction.

Stand back! He's running 89! It will blow any minute!
