How To Make Black Smoke?

Burn heavy hydrocarbons or polymers.

Rubber sheeting, roofing felt, rolls of polythene, tyres, tar blocks, large amounts of diesel, lubricating oil, bunker fuel or jet fuel.

All these combust inefficiently in air and produce huge clouds of dense, carbon rich black smoke.

What creates black smoke?

In general, a hotter fire will convert more fuel into elemental carbon, which forms into tiny particles that absorb light and appear in the sky as black smoke. A cooler combustion—or one that doesn’t work as efficiently—yields less-pure forms of carbon. These tend to reflect light, making the smoke look white.

How can I make my truck black smoke?

3. Install a smoke switch and start rolling coal like a pro. A smoke switch is the key to fooling your engine into thinking it needs more fuel, which lets out the excessive amount of diesel needed to belch clouds of black smoke. Smoke switches can be built, and sometimes bought, for most types of diesel engine.

What is the difference between black smoke and white smoke?

Smoke is the biproduct of the fuels it is burning. White smoke can also indicate light and flashy fuels such as grass or twigs. Thick, black smoke indicates heavy fuels that are not being fully consumed. At times, black smoke can be an indicator that a manmade material is burning such as tires, vehicles or a structure.

How do you get black smoke out of a diesel?

The fix for this is to add a detergent additive to your diesel fuel on a regular basis. A multifunctional treatment like Dee-Zol will clean out the deposits, reduce the amount of fuel burned incompletely burned, and can even extend the life of your DPF (because less soot are being produced at any one time).
