Default Does a 5 port engine use more fuel?

If you had a 3 port and a 5 port same engine which would use more fuel?

If both were tuned with the same settings the 5-port would use more fuel.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT PORT VOLUME A 5 PORT HAS LESS THAN A 3 PORT IT WOULD SEEM THAT A 5 PORT USE LESS FUEL.BUT I NEVER COMPARED THEM
