Sounds pretty normal to me. From what I have gathered, people are getting on average between 400-500km per tank. That's metro and highway driving (probably 50/50).

I get 450km/tank metro driving (really parking lot freeway driving and a bit of metro).

what size tyres do you run and how much air do you have in them, it makes a huge difference, also i dont see the point in complaining about petrol when youv gone and put a cam in it and its a 4.0l lol

honestly if want more economy put the std cam back in..
and when you say you done the injectors? what do mean by "done".
if you have put bigger injectors, there is your problem, std injectors are big enough to support atleast 170rwkw n/a..so on a std ecu anything bigger than std is just wasting fuel..

imo the thing u have to remeber is you have a 4l not a 4cyclynder so if you are driving around town its gonna chew your fuel if your on the highway u average 8l/100 to 10/100 around town its more like 15-16/100 well according to my trip computer anyway it may be worth while installing a trip computer into your car so you can keep an eye on ur economy and see how much your using
