And the soot on the back? Doesn't look like a "Clean Diesel (TM)".
If the car is based on the G3F, then the engine is a tuned/chipped ALH TDI engine. 250hp with 400ft-lbs of torque when you really step on it, which is where you will get soot. Keeping a light foot on the accelerator will give great mileage, and not produce noticeable soot.
