Well it generally takes a lot of weight removal to get better results on bot ratings. If I remember right, for every 100 lbs you remove from a car, you get .1 seconds better in the quarter mile. And as for fuel economy, for every 200 lbs removed, it yields about a 1.7 mpg increase. So if a small increase in both is worth it to you, then go for it! I dont see how it could hurt.
