white smoke

OK this morning I went out and started the pickup, it had been plugged in for about 4 hours. When i started it there was a BIGcloud of white smoke. It never has done this before.

When I pulled outa the drive way i got on it a little and no white smoke same old black some no performance issues. The only thing i can think of is that I was a little low on fuel could this have anything to do with it???


Thank you all

IIRC its incomplete combustion from cool combustion chamber temperatures, as engine warms it more completely burns the fuel.
