Ok, I posted before saying that my CTD smokes when cold, and I only notice it in the morning.

Well the last night, when it was warmed up, if I would get on it a little bit I could see some sort of smoke in the headlights of the car behind me. I couldn't tell what color it was, but in the day time I can't really see it.

Is this normal? :confused:

Just FYI, there is a new TSB on 04.5 trucks for white smoke and low fuel milage. I just read about it the other day and it was just released. Read the TDR and you will find it.

According to the overhead I get 18-19.5 on the freeway, and according to most thats 2mpg under what it actually is. So I assume I don't have a problem?

Don't assume anything. How are you driving when it smokes, are pulling out into traffic? Are you just cruising easy? Do you have any gauges, higher than normal EGT/lower than normal boost, etc. Don't know much but hope you figure it out.

I don't have guages yet and the truck is stock (for now). I noticed it when I was pulling into traffic under medium acceleration and higher RPMs.
