Get someone to follow you and take note if you are blowing smoke. You make be over fueling. Check for thich black smoke through the range, particularly down low(rev's).

If the smoke is blue you may be letting oil past the oil rings, or from a leaking head gasket or past valve stem seams.

My guess without knowing much more is simply injectors. Remove them and get them cleaned properly by an injector specialist.
