Efficientcy question

Ok, I like not having the drag on the belt driven waterpump on my engine. Since the E-pump will have to runn all of the time, how much more drag will be placed on the engine due to the alternator supplying power for the extra electrical load?

Since there are probably soooo many variables, let's limit replies to hypermiling road vehicles with a small V-6 or less ICE. Thanks
