For that follow these instructions:
1. Keep Engine Off.
2. Press the Trip Button (there's only one there)
3. Keeping the button pressed, turn the ignition key to turn on the Panel (dont start the car though) PIC 1

Woah!! This is very good trick....Guys, try in your respective cars. Hope this works.

@ anil: Are you sure that the "L" and 13 is that of remaining fule left in tank? Did you open your tank and check or you tested this with the mileage? I'am just curious....

my friend who tried it had reading displayed as 20L & when he went to the petrol pump & topped-up his car with 29L going in. So it is pretty accurate.

Just topped up my car yesterday. the reading is pretty accurate i may say

the image shows the reading before filling fuel 10L, note the time 10.56

after filling the image shows 50L, the time is 11.01

As i said it worked on the Logan & i dont think any of the cars you mentioned have a LCD display similar to the Logan's. Talking about the DLS version, it does'nt require this trick, it shows the reading by simply pressing the trip button!
