Default instataneous consumption fuel

Hi, i was wondering, i think i'm burning too much fuel and way too fast. about 450km for 80L. isn't suppose to be more then that? i own a s80 t6 2000. when i put the meter on the fuel consumption instataneous, it shows about 7 or 8 L/100km when driving normally, rpm about 1600. when i get to a stop sign and restart then it goes up to 36 or even 40 L/100km and it takes about 25-30 seconds before it draws back to normal number. when i restart after the stop sign, rpm doesn't event reach 2000rpm. i try to drive slow but something seems wrong, isnt it? thanx for your help
