Not true. The new diesels have some sort of after burner that makes
them nearly odor free. (It also costs a tad of MPG to do that.)
My beef is with those knuckle heads who put on those huge exhaust
stacks, get a chip to de-tune the engine to make it smoke and then
remove all semblance of any kind of muffler.
The new stock diesels have very little odor- also due to low sulfur fuel
mandated now days.
I had a K1500 Blazer Detriot diesel way back in the late 80s. That puppy
would pull but it also smelled bad and smoked when I had my foot in it.
