I wasn't doing anything as far as before and after measurements but I think any major weight reduction helps.
100 lbs might even be underestimating it.
I've tossed out 73 lbs - temporary spare tyre, jack, a pile of other unnecessary items. Nothing nearly as big and heavy as a rear seat, but it adds up rather quickly. And I lost a bit of weight myself, pushing the total weight saving over 100 lbs.

Unfortunately I've never been able to determine how much fuel it's saving as I've changed a lot of things at the same time.
