Kind of bizarre, but the owners manual actually warns of excessive electric use by running your fog lamps. That is not a real reason, but an interesting tidbit.

IMHO using the fog lights at night in dense fog only increases glare compared to headlights alone. I live in area with frequent dense fog and low beam headlights provide the best visibility for night driving.
