If I short cycle the glow plugs, or introduce more fuel when starting, (the being in a hurry start-up) my 300SD will leave a spray of black spots and a nice smoke spot. I tend to believe it is unburned fuel. The car does not smoke after a minute or so of running.
On some nights I still believe that a car with the fuel gauge on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio. - HST
