    Default blue smoke

    just got back from a 30 miles journey and when i pulled up to drop someone off there was a smell of burning oil but i just ignored it

    as i pulled away there was some blue smoke coming from my exhaust, as i parked up at mine i gave it a good rev and more blue smoke came

    stupidly i never looked at the mpg too see if it was a regen and just turned the ignition off

    i plugged my laptop in to see if it was a regen and the saturation is at 40 and it says the last regen was 0km ago

    im guessing it was just a regen?

    I thought a regen would be black smoke.

    Check your oil level first to see if it's dropped. Also leave the engine to cool, then start it to see if it comes back?
