You're talking about fog lights, I'm talking about driving lights. Driving
lights are long distance lights to illuminate the road further ahead then
your high beams do. It is illegal to have them wired in such a way that they
can be on when the high beams are not. Fog lights are designed to be
short-range lights to spread a wide low beam with lots of side lighting.

No, I don't think so, and I this is why the focus on the need for a "fuel
flow measure" to be utter bollocks. Clem claims it to be obfuscation.

I don't know either, I have to keep pointing things out as someone else is
trying to "divert".
