ANY Side Effects from richening my mixture???

Hello Board,

I was experiencing rough idle, hesitatation, and poor throttle response from my 1987 300E. I decided to use the allen screw and turn the air/fuel mixture to the right. It runs smooth now, but drinks gas a little more(I smell it out the exhaust too). Considering I have no multimeter, so I did it using my keen eye and ear. Are there any side effects to richening my mixture this way??
