black smoke isnt the cause of failure its heat! the more heat the more stuff is gonna break. all smoke is, is unburnt fuel, which is caused by not enough air.

Only negative effects are the fact that to generate black smoke you have to be running rich. Since the vehicle is not burning the fuel efficiently, you get black smoke.

The other negatives are even tighter emission laws on future vehicles. Blowing smoke gives diesels a bad name. As a result, we get crap like the DPF and DEF to deal with.

as long as you're not doing it every time you step on the skinny go pad, it ain't gonna hurt a darn thing. If you cover your walls in unburnt fuel and soot everytime the truck gets turned on, you're more than fine.

If you can afford the fuel, burn as much coal as you want, and watch the fuel gauge run to E. haha

There's a reason the old Big Rigs that used to roll coal (20 yrs ago with the old sulfur lubricating fuel) everytime they turned on the truck are STILL running today. Millions of miles later, the "coal rollers" are still rollin.
