I get that too sometimes. It could be caused by where you fill up at some places are wierd. Like a old suburban i had when i used shell gas the engine would ping and would be more sluggish.

for more solutions

Blue smoke generally means that oil is entering your combustion chamber. That could be blow-by caused from worn rings, high crankcase pressure, injector o-rings, the list goes on.
