It is more of avaliabe power from an engine rather that engine size, say you have a 350CID engine that makes 275hp, and a 350CID engine that makes 350hp, you will notice a larger power draw on the 275 than on the 350. So it will take more fuel to run the compressor on a lesser powered engine than the larger one, but the drawback is it will take more fuel to run the larger powered engine initially.

Modern day A/C units virtually do not effect fuel mileage.
