I notices a slight difference in starting, but no blue smoke. I can imagine blue smoke at 0 deg but not lots. How bad?

It's only gotten in the low teens here, w/ wind chill in the negatives... The couple days it did, my truck white/grey smoked for a minute or 2 after sitting parked for 12 or so hrs!!!
