I don't see it making you much more efficient.

There will be a tiny bit less drag on the engine/less friction. So little that I doubt you'll notice it.

There will be less weight to spin up, so you will waste a bit less energy as you accelerate. That might be noticeable enough if you do a lot of city driving. If you spend most of your time cruising on the highway, it will be negligible.
