Based on a 2000 calorie diet, my fat intake currently is 18% of my calories. Is that too little? Most of it is mufa, but 6 grams of it is saturated.

In brief: It depends on Yr wei

This amount of fat is fine for you provided your weight is normal.
If you are overweight and are trying to lose some pounds, then you need to cut out some calories as 2, 000 cals/day is pretty high unless you are physically very active and have an active lifestyle.
