61 plate mk2 Picanto 90k miles. Used one litre of oil in last 1000 miles! Lot of hilly terrain. Occasional bursts of grey-white smoke (which I had assumed to be an unburnt fuel problem) from exhaust when starting or after idling. Yesterday had total lack of pull and black smoke on hill start after idling. Waited for 30secs and then pulled away. No engine management light but I fear something major!
Any thoughts please?

The oil consuption in itself is high, but maybe not the cause of your immediate problem. If you are not out of warranty, get it investigated by Kia. Could be fuel injector problems, but I'm no mechanic.
