I leave mine on, I don't know why I just do. I had a 2002 Tundra and I NEVER had those on.

i leave them on all the time, along with my regular head lights. i dont turn them off, they all go off when i open the door. i wish i could just have the fog lights on and the regular lights off sometimes though. ill have to do a search i guess.

I have them on everytime my headlights are on. I have never been annoyed by an oncoming vehicle with their fog lights on.

i didn't do the mod, i was disappointed to find out the the headlights had to be on for the fog lights to work because i always drove with my parking lights and fog lights on and only turned on my headlights when it got dark...

as for the weather thing i've seen that a lot of people make their fog lights yellow (i'm not a fan of it myself) but i guess it's supposed to be better in bad weather/fog. well when i was taking defensive driving i read that in the state of arizona it is actually illegal to have yellow fog lights on during the day, which i thought was odd... i did a quick google search and couldn't find anything, but just you might want to know

On always. It's a safety issue people. They're not so much to see with, as they are to be seen with.

On at night and when it's raining/snowing. I like the way it looks, Sometimes I drive with them on during the day.

hmm... that's interesting. It may be one of those laws that isn't enforced or known about (even by the LEOs). I ran yellow fogs in AZ during the day (just left the HLs on) and never had any issue.

yeah, i see people driving with them all the time... i doubt it is enforced (until the end of the month as they need to make their quota ) was just more of a fyi
