Has anyone got any idea why the veloster AND veloster turbos spit soo much oily smoke out of the pipes? I've noticed on alot of ARK's videos as well as whenever i nail it i can see smoke in the rear view mirror.

Note: I'm not asking if this is a problem, Because I've seen it on plenty of V's and VT's I'm just curious if theres any reason why???

(E.g. my old rotary burned oil intentionally to keep the apex seals well lubed.)

When you check your oil level on the dip stick, are you actually noticing the level dropping? Also, what color is the smoke your seeing?

I've only got 200 miles on the car so I haven't checked the oil ;)

I guess what I'm wondering is why it burns oil and not if. Not sure though I could be oblivious about something haha.

See this video:

Brand new exhaust pipe could be burning off oils left in the pipe from manufacture.

Depending on outside conditions, could be condensation your seeing.

Most likely you are seeing a little puff of smoke coming from a rich air/fuel ratio. When you first hit the gas, a fairly large dump of fuel is release into the engine. At first it will be rich until the turbo spools up and creates the positive pressure the engines ECM is expecting. Once turbo is pressurizing the intake manifold and exhaust pressures rise accordingly, that little puff of smoke from the intial fuel dump is pushed out the tail pipes all at once.

I see it about mid-day sunny about 75-80 degrees out hmm... I do run 91 instead of lower grade, but i cant see it making that much of a difference.
