Default black soot out the exaust

My muffler was loud and my check engine lightwas on. I knew the gas cap was okay and neaded to fix the muffler before I hd my car inspected. soI had my muffler system installed and I also had sensors replaced. Last night I picked my car up the light is out I ran it for about 35 miles the truck started dog out and sputter with black smoke. I ran it today It ran good but I am not sure if this is a tempory sense of well being I put dry gas in and used high test

I believe an overly rich fuel mixture causes soot. You might have an injector problem. If the problem persists try running a couple of tanks of fuel system cleaner to clean out the injectors first. Run the tank nearly empty with each fill up to get the best results.
