It all has to do with the tuning done to the truck for the most part. My truck is mostly stock and will just let out a light haze when I get into it or when pulling a load.

Whenever you are dumping too much fuel into the engine and it can't completely burn it all is when you get the black smoke. That is why typically the modded trucks produce black smoke the more you mod them.

But with that being said a good tune can almost get ride of the smoke or give you a lot lol.

it's wasted power basically...but it can be fun.

These days it will your wallet more than it will hurt your truck!
