Any significant electrical load takes more fuel. My stereo ccan consume up to 800 watts at full crank. That is over 1/2 hp of electricity. An alternator is lucky to be 50% efficient at best. So making 800 watts can take a full horsepower or more of engine power.

If you have a regular radio with no other equipment it is not significant.
