Default Vitara Estate jlx 93 massive fule consumption!

hi people, im new to the site so i will start with a tricky one.
I had a little 2door suzuki vitara (93) and loved her to death. literally. something went faulty and one morning she would not start, then after trying to clutch her down the road (yes, we do no how to clutch a car!) her carby flooded (there was also fule leaked into the exhaust) and we are guessing the started motor had siezed (would not turn over) and over heated, heating up the leaking fule and BANG! she was incinerated.
so i got me a 4 door vitara estate wagon (93). just weeks after purchasing her, we had the radiator replaced (it was falling to pieces) and a hotdog installed (gives her a real nice booming hum)
but, she is consuming 13 liters per 100km! thats almost as much as our Mitsu Pajero! Now, i swear its not my driving, im really not a hoon and am quite easy on her. and she rarely goes off road ( ) i drive at low reves as i like to hear the rumbling the hotdog makes. the hotdog can be held accountable for some increase in fule consumption, but not that whole amount.
come on people, what are your thoughts, will i have to remove the hotdog or can it be something els causing this (financial) problem?
(injectors and what not were cleaned after hotdog was installed, so about a month ago. made no real difference)

Wink tricky question ?

So what you are saying is that you are not a hotdog loving hoon that likes to pour fule down the carby.
Is that about right ?
Over here in the states a Hotdog is something that you cook on the charcoal grill at an out door picnic with your mates and you spread mustard and sauerkraut on it.
In the states we don't have Hoon's, although we do have Goon's and im guessing that a hoon is just about as bad as a hoon.
I thought that Fule was a german or french word for gasoline ?
And a carby, Lets not go there.
Im guessing that this hotdog thing a ma jig that you have installed on your rig is throwing the whole emission and fuel ( fule ) control system out of whack and just as soon as you remove it and go back to the original part all of your problems will be solved.
