    05 cdti diesel 103k miles, receipts for plenty of oil changes & recent fuel filter. Smokes on cold start...a hell of a lot...like a smoke screen!! Lasts a few seconds and does it much less when hot starting.
    Also kicks out a good amount of smoke when up the rev range at working temperature, this seems like need for an EGR clean. I suspect I may have one of the leaky injectors as can smell diesel...will take a look when the gales stop. Any pointers please? Ta, Neil

    Starting to think a petrol may be a good idea....

    The usual cause of smoking is over fueling. It's common on remapped diesels.

    Ah, I missed the point of smelling diesel, Doc has it the nail on the head then I think.

    it doesnt use any oil ie none in 3.5k miles but it does use diesel, quite frugally
