Question: BQSR on one sample vs. all samples in a run

I'm trying to run BQSR on a sample from a miSeq run, but received an error saying that I need to add read groups. Since this sample was one of 40-something samples multiplexed during a run, should I merge all the samples on one BAM before running BQSR, so that BQSR is more accurate/effective? I read this on the GATK article on read groups, which prompted my question:

Use for BQSR: ID is the lowest denominator that differentiates factors contributing to technical batch effects: therefore, a read group is effectively treated as a separate run of the instrument in data processing steps such as base quality score recalibration, since they are assumed to share the same error model.

To my understanding, it simply needs a RG field appended to your sample. But you have a different question though: Does BQSR vary between single sample in one RG vs multiple samples in one RG.
