You should write up more information.
If your not being greedy for power, a AM turbo will reduce consumption.

A trip to a reputable diesel tuner may be on the cards.

Did you get it tuned by a professional? Incorrect timing can lead to high fuel consumption and mild overheating

i would say timing aswell , saying that my car is heavy on fuel around the city but on the hwy it uses very little, but that is the way i have tuned it, i have to learn to take it easy around the city to keep fuel usage down

Thanks mate. Going on that then I agree with the others, first stop tuning house.
Maybe also check the brakes and/or handbrake aren't binding?

When mine was standard I could get around the 800k's.
It's down a fair bit now due to accessories, tyres, lift etc and that's why I asked.

Good luck with it.
