Re: Smoking generator

Yes...white smoke is most likely unburnt fuel...or less likely, water vapour in the exhaust.
Put your hands over the exhaust ...if it smells of diesel , it's unburnt fuel 
If that is the case, then perhaps one cylinder is not firing..you should be able to hear / feel that...
OR if the weather is cold when you start the engine and it goes away as the engine warms up, then you've got a compression problem...piston rings / valve seats....
