    Mine was / is ever so slightly waxy in consistency plus it has some added grit that is deposited in the tail pipe from driving but the exhaust itself is soot that is fractionally waxy IMHO

    Cheers Derek,its just that I'm now trying to get some idea of the contents of the exhaust output now that I have done the CCV.They do say you can tell how your engine is performing by the colour of the exhaust exit.Although that was for petrol engines,I thought under the circumstances I might try and apply it to my engine and see if I could get some kind of pattern going.FELIXX.
