That does seem like an awful lot of liquid for the area you're testing. It's taking you 75 to 80 seconds to cover 340 square feet? How many and what type of nozzles are you using and what is your travel speed? Based on what you've calibrated to, your calculations are probably right, but you should be able to cover it faster, resulting in less liquid required. I built a spread sheet with different spray rates and speeds calculated, so I'm curious about your setup. At the rate you're spraying, it would take you 128x80 seconds or 170 minutes to cover an acre. That just doesn't sound right.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.
