I just noticed today (after my Astra was being driven by someone else), that my exhaust seems to be a bit smokey when it's booted.
The bottom end is pretty fresh and the fuelling is basically spot on, could it just be very hot oil (temp gauge was saying about 100+deg) getting thin and just burning?
Oh yeah, I'm running on Castrol R 10/60

Yeah a little bit, I think Dave might have mapped the car a little rich to be on the safe side.
was black smoke wasnt it matt?
I dont think its oil then - definaltey excess fuel.
cheers for letting me drive BTW - was a right laugh
