I dunno but lately i have been noticing all those newish snazzy common rails pumping blobs of black smoke as they take of from the lights and old TD42 some of which almost nothing...some lots of coarse.

How does one measure this? my wife followed me for a 500km round trip 40% of it at night with me towing the boat and I asked here how badly did the td42 smoke and she said she couldn't remember any.

depends on lots of things, fuel mix, air intake, injectors, pump timing, the list could go on longer than johnny holmes .........

get the basics done drop oil, renew filters including fuel, take it to an injection joint get em tested, get the pump timing adjusted.
