Under normal driving the supercharger is not used all that much. Removing it will cause other problems that will need to be corrected threw tuning, etc. The money spent doing all this isn't worth what you will save in gas, if any.

In theory yes a supercharger would make your car get worse gas mileage (the point of the */c is to force more air in so more fuel can be added to create a more powerful combustion) but as stated above the cost of removing it combined with what would prolly be a very minute difference in mileage isn't worth it at all.
