I get less indexed reads on CUSTOMERS, but a lot of more indexed reads
BACKLOG 216 IR
CUSTOMERS 2290 IR
TURNOVER_PC_CS 185.564 IR
BACKLOG 216 IR
CUSTOMERS 11992 IR
TURNOVER_PC_CS 11992 IR

from BACKLOG join CUSTOMERS on BLCSID=CSID and CSUSID1=56 and CSGPID3=65
left join TURNOVER_PC_CS on BLPCID=TO6PCID
where TO6PCID is null
group by BLPCID
but the performance is terrible, so I agree with you to use NOT EXISTS.
