Look at the input form of the \[Epsilon]^(K2*P1*P2*K1), because what you

see is just a format used to display the contraction of LeviCivita tensor

with four 4-momenta.

Substitution rules work for the InputForm expressions. This is basically

not a FeynCalc question but a Mathematica programming question. You can

specify the custom tensor with Tensorfunction as follows

*>>> Tensorfunction[t, mu, nu, ...]
*

See http://www.feyncalc.org/FeynCalcBook/Tensorfunction/index.html for

details.

Additionally I would suggest substituting the contractions of your tensor

with four-vectors after the FeynCalc will contract the lorentz indices for

you with the vector components.

I.e. you do not need to specify the tensor in components as you mentioned

phi_mu_nu = diag{0,1,1,0} but specify it as a substitution rules for tensor

contracted with two arbitrary 4-vectors and its trace.
