its oil off of your hands. let it idle for a few mins. it happens to everybody.
That's it right there ^^^. That smoke helps cure the ESMM inserts. It's very important that you close the garage door and let it run inside until all the smoke comes out. The instructions don't mention this, but if you don't do it, they will split and fall out after 3 months.

OMFG...................Should I sit by the car, in the closed garage, while it runs, just to make sure everything is ok?
