I had a cloud of smoke the other day too. It looked more like steam cloud to me.

What were you doing before the smoke? Braking hard, accelerating hard? :headscratch:

Drifting! Haha.

At the moment I was accelerating quickly (4bar) but I don't remember all the other details. I remember seeing the cloud and thinking "is that the same thing others are seeing?"

Well, 007 came back for a visit again yesterday. Got down on it and my daughter's car that was following behind us disappeared. Do we have a "Ford" explanation/ fix for this crazy issue yet? 61,500 miles. Mileage approximately 44-46 mpg these days.

I also have gotten the cloud of smoke.  It was sudden 1.75 bar to 3.25 bar accelerating to make it through a light that was soon to be turning red. The car had been in use for about 15 minutes.  I am not worried about it.  The car accelerated nicely.  The quickness of the change from 1,75 to 3,25 bar may have something to do with it.  

 

My sense is often it is better for gas mileage to add some speed to get through a traffic light rather than stopping.

Had it happen a couple of times when the car was young :) . At 200k MADMAX still doesn't use much oil so I haven't worried about it. Probably a little oil in throttle body getting sucked through. :)

Interesting.  Will have to check for this since we've been focused on mileage stats.

 

Has anyone named their car Cloud-Max yet?

I've never experienced this issue, love the torque too much.

Holy Cow,
