Welcome to the Werkz.

Some of the injector cleaning solutions (used through fuel tank) do produce smoke after use, but if the smoke continues after a few days let us know and we'll see what other issues it might be.

Does the smoke dissipate after a few minutes of the engine starting and warming up?

We used to use a device that intersects with the fuel line and introduce some high-alcohol fluid (isopropyl) to flush/clean the injection system... Worked a treat and it did take a short while to settle back down!

If you start the engine and then stop it after the smoke disappears, let it sit for 30 minutes with the hood up and then restart it, do you still get the same smoke?

Once you have a half empty tank, try filling up with your normal fuel and see if the smoke is still there and as heavy as it is currently.

Unburnt fuel OR Burnt oil... Can be a similar smell...
What colour is the smoke?
