There are seals beneath the injectors that seal it to the prechamber. It's possible that one was not replaced when a previous mechanic pulled the injector. You can hold you hand over each injector with the engine running, you may feel a puff of air above the faulty one. I'd check for a missing (or backwards) seal before replacing injectors. I seriously doubt the injectors are bad though. It's not that hard for a DIY, they just unscrew (need deep 27mm socket that clears the return line nipples).

And yes, your MPG is very low. You should be getting 28-34mpg, which is 400-600 miles per tank.

Good luck,
