    could be (if you are lucky) that you have murdered the bearings on the turbo.

    super and octane has too less difference in Pk to cause misfire, must be real bad fuel to cause this.

    clean car's fuel pump area, fuel filter, fuel line, injectors etc.

    I filled up with diesel once. Missed badly, pinged and white smoke. Turbos usually don't smoke while the load on the shaft is distributed. Its usally off-thottle or on startup and if the bearings are shot, the turbo with shot beraings will usually whine (death whine).

    daymm ahad...sounds like piston ringlands to me...
    what were u running for engine management this time?
    are u even "tuned"

    go out side and do a quick check...
    start the car...drive around for a bit...let her warm up..
    then shut it off..
    pop the hood and take the oil cap off of the valve cover..
    if u see smoke coming out of that...then its bad..
    let me know

    White smoke in turbo car means weak turbo, becuase the oil which turbo uses to increase the pressure is being leaked into the manifold cuasing smoke - just get the seals of the turbo changed that's it...............

    Wow, you need a lot of luck! white smoke is sign of burnig oil. That could mean many things.

    Turbo seals or bearings giving up and the car emits white smoke.

    car loosing compression also emits white smoke.

    clunking noise from the exhaust might be a shot bearings and shaft having play or simply you might have a busted exhaust downpipe.

    But all these things do not happen by using low octane fuek just once, unless the car was run on full boost all the time.

    Or your knock sensor has just come into play and retarding your timing due to low octane.

    Like I said could number of reasons, and sitting on a cputer and guessing is not an exact science.

    Good Luck
