Welcome to GS! I'm not a VX owner, but as you can see, you're in good hands. I actually had MPG info going back 2-3 years before GS, but the thought of entering it was agony (and the MPG wasn't so great either).

Best sofar is 59 mpg on a 450 mile freeway trip going around 60 mph. I had one tank with only city driving and that was still just above 45 mpg. All this with the original engine, so I wouldn't hesitate to get one with over 200K on the engine at all.
I have experienced with that whole headlight being on aswell. If you want the buzzer on your VX you can get a piezo buzzer at RadioShack and hook it up to the fuse box. I"ll try to find that site, but I don't have to keep worrying about if I turned the lights off.
