    Think you may be consulting the stealers very soon or an indipendant garage.

    Sounds like a leaking fuel line somewhere?? A dangerous one at that as it sounds like fuel is dripping onto the exhaust (causing smell/smoke) from your symtoms described. Either way i'd have it checked out properly and soon. If your losing fuel, not only think of money wasted but think of those poor bikers that are slipping about on your now slippery road. (Okay assuming you have a leak that is).

    Hope it is not too serious for you.

    Today!! The new tomorrow, live the NOW!!

    99% sure its not a fuel leak there is nothing on ground when parked and cant smell diesel, the burning smell was like a tyre burning, the smell has now gone but fuel computer live fuel comsumption is still very low saying most times around 10 to gallon, have only had car 2 weeks, done a search on forum and was reading about DPF, could it be this how long does it take to get to get back to normal, if it is this (fuel comsumption to go back to normal), HELP

    might only leak when fuel is circulating with pressure?

    my live fuel consumption is about the same depends how you drive
    if you are in 5th gear cruising not thrashing then consumption will show a silly reading like 50 or more to gallon
