3 years were up with Celerio, which meant that it had to go back as it was on official car lease program.

With Celerio gone, a new car joins Ciaz as a replacement car lease vehicle.

Isn't Valvoline required to be added to 30/35 liters of fuel ? Or you want to add it in concentrated form (in maybe reserve fuel left) ? I have been told by Liqui Molly people to add 250ml in next tankful of 40 liters or so.

The guy at the store asked me to add it before I fill my tank up. Let's see.

Took a trip to Udaipur, and it was a delight.

Roads were excellent, weather was awesome - felt like some remote hill station, cold and clouds, cool breeze blowing across. Never felt that I was in middle of Rajasthan !

Total kms driven - 1447
Diesel Spent both ways (tankful to tankful ) - 59.5 ltrs
Mileage - 24.31
(75% AC , speed in the range of 80 to 110 max )
Fuel Price in NCR - 64.74
Fuel Price in Udaipur - 70.98
Toll Tax One Way - 750rs

Following route was taken -

Left home at about 4:45 AM - wanted to cross Jaipur as soon as possible. It rained throughout the journey - sometimes light, sometimes heavy rain.

Road was clear, no potholes and with no traffic jam.

Notice 90km/hr speed with just 1800RPM - secret to awesome mileage.

On reaching the farmhouse, its all dirty and full of mud -

On return, before filling the car up, added about 250ml of Liqui Molly Diesel Purge to the tank.

I was in doubt with regards to quantity as I received multiple options.

Liqui Molly customer care from Germany told me to use whole 500ml can in one tankful of 40ltrs.

Liqui Molly distributor from where I bought this can asked me to divide 500ml into three times, so about 160ml per 40 ltrs.

Directions at the back of can advises for 500ml in 75ltrs, roughly 250ml for 35 to 40 ltrs.

I have not driven extensively after adding this - just about 5 kms or so. Lets see if it makes a difference.

Liqui Molly has surely improved acceleration, the engine feels a lot more smooth. Can be placebo effect, but it feels a lot better than before.
Noise from the engine is a bit less - not much difference though. Moreover, this is very subjective - so in next refill will install an app in phone to measure the noise.

For tires, I have not yet changed mine - and looks like they still have a lot of tread left.

Update !

All of a sudden, car's SHVS stopped working. Along with it noticed that "A Off" light kept blinking. Earlier, during the last 10/15 days had noticed that car was not switching off on being stationary - never thought much about it.

Following was the light which was blinking -

Size:  5.1 KB

So, on coming back home, disconnected the negative terminal, waiting for couple of mins or so, and connected it back. Light was gone, and everything was normal for about 5/10 kms. And then it was back on, blinking.

I knew beforehand, that since its 4 years + 50K kms, its bound to be battery. Took it to service center, and had them run a diagnostic.
Surprisingly, battery health came out OK.

There was an error though on their console - which even after clearing came back after few starts.

Service Center summarized it that the SHVS is very sensitive to battery health, and any deviation would lead it to disable the SHVS Hybrid System - so even though the battery should last you about 2 to 6 months more, no one can be certain. And with coming winters, its more probable to give you trouble. They shared a tentative cost of Exide battery ( the same model and AH which is installed initially ) and asked me to look for options outside if they are at least 70AH or more.

On inquiring, Amron, SF and Exide Red had models - price was around 1500 to 2000 cheaper than MASS. And with a difference of just 2K after labour charges, went ahead and told the guys to change the battery. Surprisingly, the center did not pushed me even once to get it done from their end - contrary, they did the testing etc without even opening the job card.

New battery comes with 24 months standard + 24 months Pro Rata = 48 months warranty.

Price after old battery buy back = 8658 ( 500 for old battery )
