Just wanted to update on this. Surprisingly, I got 19.6 kmpl for the whole journey and this includes Rey spirited driving from Pali to Abu Road and on the Ahmedabad-Vadodara National Expressway. Also, includes the snail paced traffic at the infamous Fountain Hotel junction near Mumbai. Really happy with the result.

Car : 2019 Dzire Gen 3 VXI AMT
ODO : 24182
Distance: 865 km round trip with 70% on wide NH and 30% on decent SH , 3pax and 3 small bags
Speed maintained : 80kph with A/c set to 2
Mileage : 26 as per MID but when using tank to tank method got 24
Have extracted close to 26 from it without AC but will prefer showcasing a realistic scenario. Once cannot sacrifice comfort just to extract 2kpl more in the summer.
City Scenario : Realistically 17-18Kpl in Bangalore traffic

Continuing the fuel log of my 5th Gen Honda City CVT. Completed 500km since the last refill, 100% city driving through fair amount of traffic, AC ON 100% of the time, just me in the car. 15kmpl. Tankful to Tankful.

I am mighty impressed this time. I drive 48km daily in Pune, travelling across 2 ends of the city. Shifted the car to "ECON" mode and with a light right foot and maintaining RPMs around 1200-1500, I was able to extract this mileage. CVT is butter smooth but what surprised me is that a 1500cc petrol engine + CVT returning a better mileage than my previous ride (Tata Zest 1200cc petrol + MT) in the same conditions.

I usually get around 13-14 kmpl with 60:40 Highway : City runs with Panda (2017 Creta Petrol Manual) some times it falls to 11-12 and goes high as 15-16. However till date I have not got a figure less than 10.5 kmpl. That 10.5 too was due to 4-5 hours continuous idling with AC on.

What prompted me to write this was a peculiar observation I made today morning. Panda's fuel gauge has 16 bars. Usually after refill till auto cut off, the first bar disappears after running for about 90-130 kms depending on road and traffic conditions.

I had filled petrol till auto cut off a couple of days ago in anticipation of price hike post elections and today after travelling for about only 60 kms the first bar disappeared. This has never happened this early, ever. I have had the first bar last till 180kms a couple of times but that was during the initial period of ownership and since then the norm was 90-130 kms.

I checked the engine bay and near the fuel tank but didn't find any leaks nor am I smelling petrol. I had filled from HP COCO so I don't think it was underfilled and I had filled till auto cut off. The only difference from last fill-up was that this time there was a little over quarter tank of fuel remaining whereas most of the time it will be the last two bars or in reserve.

Does the auto cut off operates at the same point/ quantity of fuel in the tank always or does it depend on the pump/ amount of fuel left in the tank while refilling?

Was pleasantly surprised by the Fuel Efficiency I got on my Nissan Kicks Diesel in the Mumbai city during the evening time rush and lots of idling.
In total I covered 70kms and got fuel efficiency of 15.60 kmpl (MID readings are pretty accurate as per my past experience). Pretty happy with these readings.
