White smoke is coming out of tailpipe while driving vehicle in accelerated position. When I step on the gas, white smoke comes out, but when I have my foot on the brake, no smoke. So the white smoke only comes out during acceleration of vehicle. I added 2 quarts of oil afterwards because I thought the oil was low. What could be wrong?

Could be the head gasket. Take off the oil cap and see if there is a milky substance on the cap or in the filler hole.
