There’s a common misconception among drivers of gasoline engine cars that diesel engines are “dirty,” and that black smoke is emitted from all of them. That’s actually not the case. Take a look at any well-maintained diesel car, and you won’t notice any black smoke from the tailpipe. It’s actually a symptom of poor maintenance and failing components, not a symptom of burning diesel on its own.

What is the smoke?

Black smoke from a diesel engine is actually unburned diesel. If the engine and other components were properly maintained, that material would actually be burned in the engine. So, you can immediately tell that any diesel engine spewing black smoke is not getting the fuel mileage it should.
