I noticed premium fuel is recommended for the 2.0 Eco-boost. Any downside to running regular?

I think Ford says to get the max hp as advertised, premium fuel is needed. I always have used premium in my 2.0 liter.

Carbon buildup, lower performance. Use non ethanol fuel 89 to 90 octane. Best performance with 93 octane.
