Black smoke is unburned fuel.
BD is oxygenated, unlike #2, so it tends to burn more efficiently.
I suspect you can make smoke with BD but it will be harder to do so.

The engines I have seen run both fuels, the BD smoked a lot less under the same conditions - some would quote around 50% less. I guess if you changed the parameters - either tuning specifically for the BD, or dumping in more fuel, the smoke could be affected either + or -.

i don't really see any black smoke when i run b100, if i really get on it i sometimes see a greyish black haze come out but its nothing compared to what my truck will do will spew using Diesel.

I think black smoke is very hard to come by on Bio, even as low as B20. I tried B20 on my farm tractor and the black smoke disappeared. All I get now is a faint white smoke. The thing I noticed the most on the tractor is all the junk it blew out of the exhaust pipe for the first tank.

when I am running bio I can get some smoke on my smoke tune but it clears up real fast. So simple answer is yes it still will smoke black but won't be as much or as long.
