    Advice please

    Whilst on the motorway this afternoon the B6 emitted a large puff of grey smoke that seemed to hang in the air behind the vehicle. I was just coming up passed the castle on the way back into Stafford and was at the end of a 190 mile run. There was no streaming, it was just like the car had a single, large belch.

    It was really quite odd, there was no loss of power, no change in performance. From stationary at Jct14 the turbo kicked in as it should and there didn't seem any loss of power. The engine isn't kicking out any other visible smoke, oil is fine and clean so wouldn't say its a head gasket or injector issue. In fact i'm not sure what it is or whether to be worried.

    As it's a 170 I am fairly sure they have a DPF on, it may have been regenerating, can you tell normally when it's doing that?.

    Cheers gents, I was wondering if it was some DPF related matter. No warning light on so business as normal
