Plugs fouling out

Can anyone explain why sparkplugs foul out in cold weather. I know the fuel is fouling them out but is there a fix for this. The car runs perfect other than the problem it has with the sparkplugs.

Could it be that the fuel systems enrichment system runs longer in cold weather or that for some reason it's not tapering off as soon as it should, thereby providing an excessive rich mixture for far too long? My 2 cents.

James Madison - Oppressors can tyrannize only when they achieve a standing army, an enslaved press, and a disarmed populace.

Liberty Firearms Training - After years of trying to regulate California criminals with a never ending stream of gun control laws they have still not given up with the belief that if they make something a crime that criminals will miraculously start obeying the law.
