When cold my 147 seems to kick alit tiny bit of smoke that i can see out my rear view mirror, maybe once in a while when the car is warm she will create a tiny cloud when i hammer it.

Is this normal?

Fairly normal with a diesel yeah. Probably caused by some dirty injectors, I would recommend putting some Millers ecomax in for a few tanks see if she gets better.

Dare I say add a bit of two stroke oil to a full diesel tank... This helps lube up the injectors and will be burnt away.

Just bought a 500ml bottle of 2 stroke from morrisons for £2. usually chuck half a bottle into a full tank and it definitely makes the tractor quieter. Don't know what its doing on the insides but hopefully some good.

Lubing the inside of the fuel delivery system.
Injectors / Pump / Bore / Pistons

Helps lube the system. Diesel does it so much. But as its quite a dirty fuel it clogs. The two stroke helps thin it down a bit. As its designed to be burnt away doesn't do any harm.
Its cheaper than redex etc.
