My car emmits a cloud of grey smoke in the morning on start up. After that it is ok around town. It is leaking oil under the car slowly but it is not obvious from where even though the underside is very oily. On the motorway up to 70mph in 4th it is ok but in 5th especially going uphill a plume of grey smoke comes out of the exhaust. This goes away again soon after leaving the motorway.

The engine had a new head gasket and new piston rings fitted by Rover City of Leeds just 1 year ago.

What could be the problem?
