RE: [T3]Smoke signals (was white smoke)

<x-flowed>generally, (and I mean generally there are no absolutes) when coming from a 
tail pipe, blueish or a light greyish smoke is burning oil. black smoke 
usually signifies that you are runing rich.

This is one of the reasons that you have the lovely blue smoke from 
chainsaws, and other 2-stroke motors. You definitely are burning oil in 
these cases, because you mixed it in with the gas...hopefully :)

That will be the case for any auto...generally
