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
