So I'm on my second tank of fuel on my 4.8 so perhaps a little premature, but I managed 30l/100km or 3.34km/L on the first tank and the second isn't looking any better. I was expecting 4.8km/L given the engine, but something must be out of spec. What can I check before the next service which is still a few thousand kms away?

Well, I guess Tinus knows better on that front. I did not even think a heavy foot can do that to a 4.8.
It looks like you live in PE?
In that case it may take too much petrol to get to Graham. There must be another solution.

In my recent case, I had two problems. A weak fuel pump (that was on its way out), and the ECU setting being wrong. Both contributing to poor consumption.
Too much fuel pressure is also bad for consumption, but this is unlikely as the regulator should set that right (I assume the 4.8 has its own built-in regulator?). But a faulty underperforming fuel pump is a possible cause. This would however coincide with poor engine performance as well.
I do not know how easily the mapping of the 4.8 ECU can go wrong though. I think not, as I have not heard much complaining about that.
