I can't help you with the lights. But as for fuel consumption, the longest trip I have currently taken was 333.1 miles. That is about 536 km. The amount of gas I used was 12.05 USgal (that is what the gas pump read upon refilling). The average was 27.6 mpg for the trip.
I do have to say that I was not driving conservatively on the outbound half of the trip. I did on the return portion. I figured both separately and then in total. Outbound was a bit over 26mpg and return a bit over 30mpg.
I expect to get a little more fuel mileage than 30 mpg if I keep my driving civilized. That is hard to do at times with a fun little sport car like the SLK.
