The advantages of ART is that it doesnt run from a cache folder but directly from the apps. No need to clean. (Some body correct me if wrong)

I believe it pre-compiles similar to Dalvik, but more in advance. I know apps use more space in ART vs Dalvik.

It is true that storage usage increases when ART is enabled, but it doesn't mean ART uses more space than dalvik. It's a misconception from people. What happens is that when you turn on ART, the folders "cache/dalvik-cache & data/dalvik-cache" stay untouched taking a huge space. Use a file explorer and confirm.
If you wipe those 2 folders, you might gain even more space back than what you had using dalvik.
