I have found that more light is better than less under any weather conditions...will my fogs "burn out" quicker if I run them all the time???

No faster than any regular headlight bulb. They should time about the same as your headlights.

Custom interior ambiant lighting, Airbox Mod (sometimes), Mazdaspeed6 tails, custom installed lower fogs (burnt out. need to get the kit)

well of course the lights are going to burn out faster the more they are on but they still last quite some time. The fogs point right in front of the car and out a little ways the only time i think it is worth it to turn them on would be on small country roads, or in nasty weather conditions. Just what i think is most effective.

I run my fogs all the time; never turn 'em off as I wired them to run as DRLs (so I wouldn't be running my HIDs during the day, which is bad). No problems at all.

Thanks...the reg low beams (on my car anyway) seem to go out to about 3 car lengths....the fogs may go out to 2ish...but...also seem to brighten up the sides very well...besides...others can see you better...

I personally don't have a real use for the fogs except around the backroads to get to my neighborhood, but i still run them all the time just for the fact that they look cool, not many cars out there i see w/ 2 lights in the headlight assembely on at the same time (w/ the exception of dumbass's rolling w/ their brights on lol )

After the fog light mod I usually run mine without the headlights as my daytime running lights.
