I don't know what that is, but I don't think so.
I believe that the VX has a "lean burn" light for when it enters into lean burn mode. It could be a light that a previous owner disconnected because they didn't like it always coming on.

Mine never had such a light.

I've never seen a light, but

I've never seen a light, but I can certainly feel when the car is in that mode. It's like suddenly running on two cylinders, only smooth. Any time during my trip that I felt it slip out of the lean burn, I immediately let off the throttle.

My feeling is that would be when vtec kicked in, having more power.

VTEC should hit between

VTEC should hit between 2500-3000, depending on how you're driving.

When does your shift light come on?

Two different times, around 1500 RPM's and I'm not really sure about which RPM for the second time, but it is close to every ten miles an hour depending on which gear you are in. Example; 20 MPH for second, 30 mph for third.
You are correct on when vtec hits.

I just did a fill up again.

I just did a fill up again. Combined city and highway miles this time, using my "new" driving skills, 358.4 miles and 6.8 gallons for an average of 52.71 mpg.
I am pretty stoked. I know I can beat that because I got in a hurry a few times and had to wind out the motor a bit. I also hit 70 mph on a few stretches running late.

That's awesome. I can't wait to swap in my vx engine.
