With the 5 blade you should run lower RPM's which in turn would burn less fuel. This only at surfing and wake speeds. If you like to cruise then you will see a noticable higher RPM to maintain your cruising speed which would cause higher fuel burn. Really depends on what you want.
Best advice - call Eric at OJ, he is the expert.
