Yes a diesel when accelerating will 'blow' a lot more smoke.. if it is blowing smoke.
Grey smoke is really pretty normal for many diesels..
If it was black for awhile, now it may be cleaning itself out..
So your fixes probably worked!!
Just drive as usual. It should get better in a few weeks.
Long drives would be better than short hops, and yeah, accelerating is fine.
