Long term fuel trim can easily compensate for the lower voltage. Many people use alternator deletes to improve fuel economy. Not that boosting voltage back up is a bad thing, there have been tests shown that say that it does improve fuel economy as well (as long as it doesn't have to come from the alternator).
