Default Is DDiS / MJD really environment friendly ?

From what I have read on the forum, the DDiS/MJD diesel engine is supposed to be the latest/greatest, with great FE and clean to boot too.

But what I came across yesterday, makes me doubt the claims and the effect of these proliferating diesel cars on the environment. I saw a Swift-D spewing a real big cloud of black smoke (like you see with trucks/buses) when he was moving (a little urgently, I should say) from a stop.

Since Swift-D has been here for maybe max a year, I don't think there can be an argument about the car being old or not maintained and stuff.

Can Swift-D owners comment whether they have noticed such smoke with their cars ?

We really don't need another speculations thread based on one particular car, which for all we know may be running on Kerosene
