Tried additives to fuel no good.it goes from no smoke to pure white cloud ? Been in a garage on diagnostic.nothing ? They took it for a long run .nothing 'tested again and passed.followed him back home then clouds of smoke for 5 minutes then nothing ? They cleaned his turbo and checked it and working perfect ? Stuck ?

I would still carry out a block test to eliminate if it is coolant or unburnt fuel

.White Smoke

Normally means that the fuel injected into the cylinder is not burning correctly. The smoke will burn your eyes.
•Engine/pump timing out
•Fuel starvation to the pump causing the pumps timing not to operate correctly
•Low engine compression
•Water/petrol in the fuel
