Disc 3 TDV6 Smoke screen

Was driving behind a Disc 3, a 08 plated model that was churning out the black stuff from it's exhausts.

Brought back memories of driving behind Old Spice

These peeps who crank open the fuel injection pump to get extra power, it's disgraceful , should be an MOT for boats to make sure they are using clean 2 stroke engines.

Actually loads of new diesels are like this - I don't know how they will ever pass an MOT smoke test. Some of the new Audis and VWs I have driven have been like this as was the Mondeo - my old Rover 420 is MUCH cleaner - and my Disco tdi even after I messed with the pump - maybe it's the cooking oil that helps!!!
