Okay, I ran out of fuel today on the way to work but luckily, I keep a small auto parts store in the trunk of my car. Soooooo, I tossed in about a gallon and a half of new 10w 30 oil and finished the drive. The fuel filter was a nice golden color, showing that I had pure oil in the lines but I had absolutely NO smoke. None. None at idle, none while driving, and none when I floored it.
Now, my car smokes on anything, especially straight D2. Why didnt it smoke today on pure oil?
Im thinking it bought some nicotine patches.
Was the new 10w30 oil blended with gasoline?
Usually white smoke is caused by lower combustion temperatures and the main culprit is fuel starvation.
The most common WMO used is 15w40 which would be slightly more restrictive at the filter.
There are other issues like fuel atomisation that rear their ugly head on W85.
The first thing we do is blame the oil, because logically it went away when you changed the oil.
All the issues I've had looked like a fuel problem , but they were existing long before the WMO was ever used.
