Could easily be a ring not quite seated yet.

Don't forget, a byproduct of perfect combustion is water.... are you sure
you don't have water vapor.  Try to waft some exhaust smell your way (don't
put your nose up to the pipe... it's not a good idea)... if it's coolant you
should smell the semi sweet antifreeze smell.  Everything has a unique smell
when it burns.

On that note... my scout still needs tinkering.  I *think* it's getting
better though.
