If this is true imagine, core parts of both petrol and Diesel cars out of Maruti Suzuki stable are borrowed technologies.

Can someone confirm on this??
Nope. AFAIK, the K12M engine is Zuki's.

Unveiling the new engine Mr. Shinzo Nakanishi, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki, said, "K12M engine is another example of Maruti Suzuki's commitment to take engine technology in India to the next level. This is in line with parent company, Suzuki Motor Corporation's focus on maximizing the environmental benefits of fully proven technologies. For this, Suzuki is fully exploiting the know-how gained in over 50 years of compact-car production. K-series engine is the latest innovation coming from this focus. K series engines are not just fuel efficient but also low on CO2 emissions. The K12M engine further strengthens Maruti Suzuki┐s efforts for fuel efficient, green engine technology for customers in India."

The Mazda K-series was conceptualized and co-developed with Suzuki in which Mazda handled the bulk of the engineering with valuable input from Porsche.

Yes, but if you see, Mazda K-series engines were developed in the 90s.

Add this to that, courtesy the link you provided.

Quote:
The Mazda K family is a 60┬░ V6 automobile engine, ranging from a tiny 1.8 L for the Mazda MX-3 to 2.0, 2.3 (in the Mazda Millenia) to 2.5 (for the Mazda MX-6, Mazda 626, Mazda Millenia, and early Mazda MPV). All are short strokeDOHC engines and were designed to be as compact as possible for short-hood front-wheel drive applications.
It says that the 1.8L engine is the smallest K-series engine produced by Mazda. So.

Yes I am talking about the swift VXi. And that figure was wrong. Dad told me incorrect amount of fuel filled. The correct FE comes out to be 15.2. But please note that dad is an extremely light footed driver. He does not rev the engine too much. So the FE obtained by T-BHPians could be slightly lower than this.
