one take will be ok. You may want to add some octane booster just in case. And then continue with premium.

I don tthink it would ruin your motor on one tank. Just be sure to use that octane booster with your next fill up of top grade gas.

If your worried about it keep your foot off the gas or turn the boost down a little if you have a boost controller. The less boost your making the less octane you need.

Once on a long trip I had my passengers take turns buying tanks of gas, and the last one filled it with regular because I guess he didn't listen to my briefing. I just kept it out of boost as much as possible until I could fill it up again with premium.

Stay out of boost, or pick up a gallon of toluene (avaliable at any paint store or home improvement store) and dump it into the tank.

Doesn't the owners manual even mention that you can use regular in a pinch?

yep - but I doubt the owner's manual contemplates an after market turbo.
