  I don't think they use a filter across the tailpipe.  It's more likely to
be an
optical device.
  In the few places in WA that test I guess it's a "snap
throttle" test.  They simply check for maximum particulate density during
a quick, full throttle.  You should have no problem getting through the
test unless some "tech" thinks it's a gasser when checking the specs.
  A pint or so of 2 cycle oil should help a little with any smoke.  It's not
likely your diesel is old enough to really make a problem either.  :)
