Diesel soot on rear

I have a diesel boat and after a good run I have to clean the transom. Are DP's the same?

Older models yes, newer ones not so much.

Depends largely on the position and orientation of the exhaust pipe plus any effects due to the way the air swirls around at that particular place.

Rarely see DPs with any significant soot buildup.

Agree. I had a diesel boat too, the soot was due to the exhaust being flush with the transom...exhaust on a DP is extended away from the coach.

Try some diesel additive for one full tank of fuel. And check your air filter. It may be running too rich.

Not an issue on our coach.

"Station wagon effect" is minimal.

Diesel coaches from 2008 and later, using ULSD fuel emit zero
smoke, even under full throttle. No soot whatsoever.
