I was using ethers.js to get the transaction receipt of a mined transaction but when I get the cumulative gas used it seems to give me cumulative gas of the block mined and not the transaction itself. How do I get gas used only by a mined transaction?

What you are looking for is the gasUsed parameter of the transaction receipt (https://docs.ethers.io/ethers.js/v3.0/html/api-providers.html#transactionreceipt) which returns the amount of gas used by the transaction.
