All else being equal, they'll probably help a very small amount. Probably not enough to register above the normal tank to tank variation you'll see.

Honda Canada added the hybrid wheels & deck spoiler on all its LX 5-speeds to nudge the fuel economy a tiny amount past a threshold that qualified them for a rebate.

Well put 'em on and see if you can see the difference . As a Civic owner, I am quite curious (see Metro's link).
