In my experience tire tread designs/sizes and types have a more dramatic impact on mileage than a tonneau does.
my 06 GMC with a tonneau got within 1mpg of my buddies 1999 without one for nearly 70,000 miles. Generally though, I was a few decimal points higher than him. That might have entirely due to the fact that I had highway tires, and he had LT tires.

However - keeping stuff in the bed dry when you drive in the rain is worth it.

Livin life one truck payment at a time.
