I'd be using the tow hitch for a bike rack or for nothing the vast, vast majority of the time, so I'm not sure it's worth the change in final drive ratio.
It won't change the mileage in any significant way and a bit better performance in city driving.. The tow grp is good investment. You have a use for it now and you never know what your future needs might be. Plus it's good for resale value.
