Preventing black smoke

I know this sounds like a stupid question but is there any way of minimising the black smoke that my 2.0TDI kicks out?

I had the DPF Delete done a few months back and since then it produces more smoke (obviously).
Since then I have been using Premium Diesel and sometimes topping up with Millers.

I just want my exhaust to be clean!! :)

Is called a soot chucker for a reason! You could try not accelerating heavily??

Haha, I've tried that and yes it does cure it but its no fun.
Guess I'll have to live with it until I save up for an S3.

You have your DPF removed and then you moan about black smoke being chucked out? You can't have it all mate! :cool:

How heavy is the smoke?? Mine barely smokes at all with a DPF delete. It could be down to the mapping.........or you could have a small boost leak. Despite its faults the DPF is very good at catching all the soot. Even I was surprised at the difference once it was removed

but...no smoke, no poke!!! :)

I may look at boost leaks, as I sometimes get an engine management light on. Think i'll get it on VCDS to check.
