There was a study about this a few years ago and a black car can use up to 2% more petrol than a white or silver car. So yes, in theory it will use a bit more fuel but realistically, not an amount that you're going to notice.

Lighter colored cars do make sense in the UAE because white, silver etc reflect  heat whereas dark colors retain it.
