    2007 Ducato Motorhome, 22000 miles. When under acceleration excess smoke coming out, no smoke on start up, when running normally smoke coming out of exhaust all the time, although not sure how much as speed of vehicle is making it go away!!!, oil checked and just slightly above max..........Vehicle is running ok, power seems ok to me.

    Has it suddenly started doing this or have you just got the van?
    Try replacing the air filter?

    You will find most deisel vans do this on hard acceleration, my 2003 transit connect does it , my Renault master does it, and just about every van i go behind , it is more obvious at night if you look in your mirrors when accelerating, it will happen even more if you have remapped the ECU, or have an ECU tune box

    White smoke from a diesel is the one you should worry about
