Black Smoke and Loss of Power

Just when I was about to hit 10,000 miles and report back that all is well the car started to bellow black smoke with acceleration and now there is no power when going up hills. Sounds like injectors or seals. I don't think it's the filters. I'll keep ya posted. My mechanic is going to open it up.

I have a 2005 MB E320. My experience is exactly the same. My mechanic says it is the exhaust system. 100% WVO has clogged up the honeycomb in the catalytic converter. Before replacing it ($1,500) he said try a few tanks of diesel and see if it doesn't blow out.
