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

Yeah mine does it too when the temps dip down pretty low.
Not quite sure what it is or what causes it but its normal and nothing to worry about

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

or in other words there is not enough heat to burn all the fuel,white smoke=partially burnt fuel from not enough heat and black smoke=partially burnt fuel from not enough air.
