What causes the smoke?

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.

My only explanation for the no smoke is the engine was hot when he put the 10w 30 oil into his fuel tank. My guess is his engine will smoke like hell when he starts it cold.
