    blue smoke is burnt oil.. if it were running rich it'd be black smoke

    he said blue , grey. hes confused. hes trying to say dark.

    OIL does not come out blue

    it comes out a light black color.

    i tested the theory myself.. when i was doit a compression test. i squirted oil into the cylinders to soak the rings..

    at start shot out greyish black
