Hyundai Venue 2019 Diesel 1.4 MT (BS4)
Tank Capacity (As per owners manual) : 45 litres
I usually refill after the fuel low light turns up (Living life on the edge ).
I always fill it to the brim which makes is ~ 50 litres.
City+ Highway Range : 750~850 kms.
Fuel Tank Capacity: 55L
Real range in City: ~650 km (Average fuel economy:~11.8 kmpl)
Real range on Highways: ~900 km (Average fuel economy:~16 kmpl)
Real range on Expressways: ~1000+ kms driven at 90 kmph (Average fuel economy:~18-19 kmpl)
I regularly take Delhi-Meerut expressway as my home (Indirapuram, Ghaziabad) is next to it. This helps me attain a good fuel economy in the city.
Also, Michelin Primacy 4ST tyres have also increased the fuel economy by ~0.8 kmpl since it has lesser rolling resistance which can be felt if you do coasting. Lastly, I always maintain a tyre pressure of 33 psi.
Baleno : 35 litres and does 550-570 easily( DTE) , used mostly on highways.
I think on reserve as well it will easily run 40-50 kms minimum as i think Maruti has aggressively set Fuel empty warning.
Nano : 15 litres , does 210-230 in City, we are easily able to fill 1-2 litres extra in it as it being a daily driver needs frequent refueling. I am going to check if the Genx 24 litre tank can be retrofitted easily.

From my experience - keeping costs and comfort aside, the biggest difference between the two w.r.t range and usage has been the peace of mind that a traditional non EV provides - I never ever have to think of the fuel levels in my car when I pick the keys while heading out, filling up gas at the station is a tops 5 mins activity + I don't have to look up for gas stations beforehand + i dont have to deviate from my route a bit.
But when it comes to my EV, the battery percentage is always on top of my head when I pick the keys and needs a bit of a check to see if its enough for the drive specially when it's an impromptu one and the battery is below 50%. If you need a charger enroute then you need to look it up before hand + have about 10-15 apps pre-installed on phone + many times its either inside a mall, not working, already occupied etc. I would say filling up gas is like picking food from a fast food drive through whereas charging EV is like those fine dining restaurants - needs planning and takes time.No such issues whatsoever when it comes to regular routine trips though, like office commute, school drops etc.
Car & Engine: Ford Ecosport Manual (1.5L Diesel)
Fuel tank size: 52L
City tank range: 600 km, but I usually fill up at 120-150 km.
Highway tank range: 770 - 800 odd km. I try to maintain between 90 - 100/110.
Car & Engine: Volkswagen Virtus 1.0 Highline MT
Fuel tank size: 45 L (goes up to 46.5 on auto cut-off)
City tank range: 520 km (average tank to tank consumption of 11.75 km/l)
Highway tank range: 750 km to 800 kms (have observed mileage going up to 21 km/l, but can assume it to be 17-18 in 75% cruising and 25% moving traffic situations)
Extremely satisfied. The mileage does fall drastically if the turbo is engaged vigorously for long durations. I generally use the turbo push to get to cruising speeds of 80-90 and then just coast in the 6th gear. In bumper to bumper traffic, the auto start/stop has been a boon, but I have my apprehensions regarding the effects it would have on spark plugs, starter motor, battery (due to AC and music system staying on). But still a good feature that enhances the practicality of this beautiful car and engine within the city.
Vehicle & Engine: 2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid - 2.4L 4Cyl + Electric motor with e-CVT
Fuel Tank size: 55L
City Range: 890-920 Km
Highway Range: 700-740 Km
Thanks to the heavy traffic in evening rush hour traffic, I'm mostly on battery power (EV70:ICE30) till I reach home.
On the highway I've noticed that the EV motor steps in once in a while to maintain cruising speed and the ratio goes to approx EV20:ICE80.
