    Default How much smoke?

    I'm new to this diesel v6 lark and was wondering if its normal for them to smoke under heavy acceleration? Nothing to excessive but I can see it in my mirrors when giving it a boot full!

    It's "normal". Don't worry about it...I stopped worrying after 80k of 3.0 experience
