Yes. It most likely is.

so i have to put up with it ,it lasts about 3 hours grey smoke

It shouldn't last that long, no, 20 minutes at most.

I suggest you get it in to a garage to be looked at.

A DPF cycle should last only a few minutes and there should be no noticeable extra exhaust smoke. A smell or a change in engine speed is often noticed though. Is there any blue smoke on start up? Has the vehicle got a full service history (every year not every second) and how many miles has it covered?

Something is not right with it.

When did you buy it. As someone else has already asked, does it have full service history.

Be unusual for turbo seals or the likes to go on an L200 of that mileage. I'm assuming you've done an Mot check to validate that mileage? Was it a Mitsubishi dealer who sold it to you?

I suggest you join www.l200.org.uk/community/index.php

Some of the members know more about these trucks than Mitsubishi dealers do.
