perfectly normal and ratio is probably fine. worry when your mates tell you its blowing a reasonable amount of smoke in the day. Dont look for problems that arent there yet.

Mate I had 2.8D and currently have turbo prado, the hilux did it, the prado does it, nothing to worry about, The old lux will even show a bit through the day more so then the prado normally under heavy throttle. Dont worry about it unless its extreme through the day, eg heavy dark black smoke = over fueling, blue smoke= stuffed engine LOL. Dont worry about it drive and enjoy.The old lux I never reved over 3200, no point, revving the crapper out of it for nothing. Regards Steve M

I had a similar problem 2 weeks ago, I had It put on a dyno and found it to be dirty fuel.

The problem came after I fueled up at a servo I hadn't used before, after the dyno tune all was good again, the cost was $345 well worth it and no more stress.
