2001 996 Lower Octane, Better Mileage

Fuel System

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 2001; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 48000;

I have a stock 2001 996 and with outrageous gas prices these days, I have switched to running regular gas (87) rather than supreme (91) over the last 30 days and my average gas mileage has improved, from 18.9 mpg to 19.3 mpg. Previous Q and A's have said that if one keeps the revs low, mpg will improve. I can testify to this. Are there any potential problems running regular gas? Thanks.Ron
