I just converted to a Zippy 2500mah LIFE as a RX battery in my Trex 600N. When using a regulated LIPO as used to put back approximately 300mah after a tank of fuel. However, with this LIFE I put back almost 600mah after one tank. This couldn`t be right, or?

You need more than a single data point to make a determination. There will also be some variation how even the same charger handles a Lipo vs a LiFE so I wouldn't get too excited yet.

I use about 335mAh per 7:30 flight in my 700 nitro.

Have you cycled the LiFe pack a few times yet?

I literally never use the word literally right.

The difference is likely in part because the regulated pack was delivering lower voltage, so lower current in the same resistance.

Plus the way the charger manages the charge profile more mAh's might get used to put a certain number in, if that makes sense. In other words, perhaps less efficient charging the LiFe battery.

Never, ever, ever, ever give up.

Today I flew three tanks and put back 1350mAh so I guess this seems right.
