I don't see a dramatic reduction, but I certainly do see a reduction in battery life when Find My iPhone services are used often. Keep in mind, even if you are talking a single computer doing these requests, that's 48 times a day that FMID is requesting your phone's location...
Are you running iOS v5.01? I saw a good increase in battery life after installing (& Rebooting the iPhone).
Two of the iPhones are running 5.01 (iPhone 4 model), while the third one is an iPhone 3G running the latest available for that model.
