My old Lag1 in town traffic was very under utilised and belched out black smoke like hell, but if I took it on the M Ways and gave it a fair amount of wellie it cleared all the black rubbish out,,,,,,,,,,, but sooner or later when back in regular town traffic the same problem always returned.

S'funny you only occasionally see a similar problem with well maintained vans where the driver isn't the owner, in a case like this the driver is a lot more willing to take the rev's right up to the governor in any gear, and anywhere he / she can.
