I am new to diesels too but I do know white smoke is water black smoke is diesel or oil. My guess is the fuel line is icing or condensating over night. I live at 7000 foot level and alot of the older diesels do this. After engine warmers were installed the problem went away. We hit the low twenties over night here and I believe parts of Arizona do the same. A space heater under the engine if in the garage will do the same for a short time but it is not a good idea due to fire hazards. Block heaters and radiator hose heaters run about 50 bucks. Not a bad investment if you ever will be in the cold.
