About 3w a pair for going latex over butyl. Not ground breaking outside of Ironman or long TT.

I'd assume patches would be even less by far since the patch is only compressed or dealt with for a tiny fraction of each rotation of the wheel whereas a tube is all the way around.

So, super negligible.
