Fog Light Curiosity

I just wanted to ask. How many of you drive with your fog lights on at night? Is this something that will drain a lot of extra power or wear out the fog lights substantially quicker?

I drive with them, but I don't think it's all that much power. A lot of people seem to have them around here. I think that the car looks a little better with them on. And I have yellow Lamin-x lol.

Just remember to refill the fog light fluid after every oil change.

I always turn them on because they actually provide a noticeable improvement in night lighting (for me anyways). Maybe when the weather warms up I'll change out all the bulbs for something brighter.

Drive with them on at night all the time.
I have hyper yellow bulbs and it looks good with the white head lights I have.

Yello Lamin-x? is that what makes the fog lights look amber/yello? I have always wondered where or how I could add that amber look to my foggies without replacing them. Where do you get the Lamin-x>

I ordered from their website. It's not extremely yellow, but it's visible. Bulbs would make more difference, but they look great. Especially when you just turn the fogs on.
