Did you calibrate the SG first, using a few actual fill-ups ?

Maybe I`m not accelerating as I should, or maybe the speed I use is to high.
You should accelerate rather swiftly at a fairly high engine loading (LOD on the SG), say 75-80 %, using low revs - in the highest gear that the car can handle.
This puts you in the range where engines usually get their best BSFC, i.e. where most HP is produced for the gas being used.
