Does it start on lpg? If so can you switch it to fuel and see if it continues running? Is fuel actually getting into the cylinders? Take all your spark plug leads off, wind the engine over as per normal a few times, (not an excessive amount, youll flood it) then take a spark plug out and if you get an instant smell of fuel after you put your nose down there a little then you know theres fuel getting in there, if thats the case then itll almost have to be a smark issue? Anyone correct me if im wrong, just trying to help a fellow out. Cheers

I was lead to believe oil burning creates blue smoke, white smoke could just be condensation, does it go away after the car warms up?

Hi I'd be keeping an eye on that 'white smoke' which is actually condensation . Excessive condensation all the time can only mean one thing.......... Head gasket :/
