Ever since I put Millers 10w50 nano oil in my 996, it smokes a bit on initial start up. Both pipes blow out the same amount, it is blue smoke and smells oily. It puffs around 10 secs after start up for about 5 secs, then no more. It doesn't always do it, but especially if left for a couple of weeks. Any one else have this with Millers?. With mobil 1 it smoked occasionally, more often during winter months.

Only ever used this in all my Pork and never ever had any issues.

Never been a fan of Millers oils in Porsche’s

Just saying.........as oil debates can get interesting on forums.

Mine does that, but then it always did to an extent. Maybe the thicker oil makes for a more noticeable smoke. On the flip side, oil consumption is lower so far with the Millers 10w 50 and the engine sounds quieter on start up so I'm sticking with it.

Totally agree ref consumption, not needed to add any in 3000 miles when with mobil1 it'd need half a ltr by now.The engine is running really sweetly and more quietly than with mobil 1 so I will stick to the Millers and ignore the puffs on cold start, there is no smoke when warm.

Better it burns residual oil than score bores because there is insufficient or too-thin oil lining the pistons, I always thought.

Just sounds like oil in your intake plenum. AOS could be letting oil get in to the air intake. Dont know
