    Preventing smokey diesels

    Hi,

    I have a MK4 2.0 DTi which, at the moment, is rather smoke-free. It's got just over 84k on the clock but has been services less than every 12k & is quiet (for a diesel) and doesn't smoke...maybe a puff on a cold start but thats it.

    I would really like to pro-long the smoke-free-ness of it. Obviously I will have it serviced / oil changed as it should be but is there anything else I can do which will prevent it from getting smoky later on?

    THanks

    Tim

    the black smoke is like one of the best things about driving a diesel

    if you can't beat them with speed, blind them with smoke haha
