Filters are cheap, I'd try that one more time. If it clears the problem again, that would strongly suggest contaminated fuel. Just my two cents, no first hand experience with your problem.

You might want to start a thread somewhere where you can get visibility. An ALH question buried in a Dieselgate thread won't get many viewers.

My suspicion? An air leak. Lots of black smoke usually means plenty of fuel.
