during the regen the carbon (soot) in the DPF is burned off to an ash. So..... in a properly operating system to me the question is. Is the white "smoke" unburned fuel or just the white ash from the DPF regen process. Under a reasonable highway load I wouldn't expect to see the ash as visible. But stop at a light, not much exhaust flow, ash is still being formed and give it some throttle and what may be coming out is just a pile of ash.
