does using a volt meter drain a battery?

im thinking of permanently wireing my radioshack voltmeter to my car battery so i will know how charged it is,(i run subs off it so i need to monitor it) will leaving a volt meter on the battery 24/7 drain it at all? thanks
its a digital radioshack multimeter,
this is the exact one

given enough time, yes it will. They don't draw much current though, will take a while. The time depends on the impedance of the voltmeter and the condition of the battery
