How many miles are on the truck? Gun Powder - sign of high sulfer content gas. Possibly change in brand of gas to a lower sulfer blend. Any other issues you seeing? Like oil consumption or sluggish acceleration?

184k original miles, gallon of oil last about a month before i have to add another gallon, and its a dog, but the smoke that burns isnt grey like most oil burners, its black. Almost like its running rich? gas mileage is 7-8 mpg country driving. gas mileage is mostly effected by having to put my foot into it because its so slow
